Case study: South West Scotland – AM Joinery
Installer: AM Joinery
Stockist: Andersons Ltd, Carlisle and Cumbria Composite Decking & Timber, Whitehaven
Location: South West Scotland
Products used: Trex Transcend® in Island Mist, and Trex Protect joist tape.
Trex Transcend® in popular shade Island Mist was used to create this one-of-a-kind overwater deck in Dalbeattie, South West Scotland.
TrexPRO Platinum Installer AM Joinery was chosen to install this unique deck, which wraps around the cabin and features steps for access to the jetty leading to a small pontoon in the lake.
Allowing AM Joinery’s Andrew Milby to showcase his skill and creativity as the sole installer for this project, this exceptional deck begins as a wraparound outdoor living space that extends into the water. Careful planning and execution resulted in each level of the deck being perfectly straight and in line.
With the deck sitting 400mm above water level, Andrew worked in the lake during the installation process, using a small boat to keep his materials and tools nearby. The jetty and pontoon – spanning 10.6 metres – feature an expertly braced three-layer framework, with Trex chosen as the top layer. Popular Trex Transcend shade Island Mist was used across the space for a sleek finish with a seamless transition from the main deck to the jetty and pontoon.
A hot tub and glass and stainless steel balustrades added the finishing touches to this remarkable deck.
The full effect
Providing the ultimate space for relaxation and lakeside living with a glowing review from the homeowner, this exceptional deck demonstrates AM Joinery’s talent as well as the versatility of Trex composite decking.
