Blueprint for Improvement: Lake Clearwater outdoor living


This 1991 home is at the edge of Indianapolis’ Lake Clearwater. The new owners wanted to enhance the exterior living space.


  • The upper deck was updated with Trex composite decking and waterproofing; the railings were in good condition, so they remained intact.
  • The waterproofing system installed below the top deck protects the now screened-in area from the elements and diverts water away from the home.
  • Tongue-and-groove paneling was installed in the screened porch.  The concrete patio remained.
  • New light fixtures and exterior painting complete the transformation.
