Boat Docks, Pavilions & Piers

For a boat dock or a boat house, there are typically a few basic designs that appeal to most people and that we can customize or make more elaborate, according to personal tastes. The basic plate form style dock or fishing pier is designed for people who don't have a boat but still like to enjoy the waterfront or fishing.

We offer the single slip boat dock for people who don't have multiple boats or PWC (personal watercraft such as jet skis). We can build the single dock with a party platform out to one side or a wide side boat dock for people who like to sit out by the lake and enjoy the weather and atmosphere. We also offer a double slip dock for those who might have multiple boats and prefer to keep their investment protected from the weather. We can also build a single or double slip dock with a custom area for a PWC (personal watercraft) lift, which is becoming more and more popular. We can custom design whatever you can envision, or we can co-design with you for the best strengths to meet your needs.

Boat Houses

Typically there are three different types of roofs for boat houses - Gables, Hips and Upper Decks/Sun Decks. Within these basic styles, we offer variations to accommodate a range of dock layouts. Roof choices are typically made with equal regard given to personal aesthetic appeal, desired utility, and cost.

The two most popular boat house roof designs are Gables and Hips and between these two options, the Hip roof offers slightly better protection from the elements and is often considered more attractive than the more cost-competitive Gable roof.  When additional recreational space is desirable, especially when a larger water level footprint is not possible, our Upper Decks/Sun Decks offer a great solution. The Upper Decks offer a great place to hang out with family and friends and enjoy cookouts or other types of recreation such as slides or different types of games.
