This existing deck was not practical for entertaining. The new design provided steps to a lower patio in the shade of the deck itself. In addition, the deck was expanded to make it useful for entertaining.
In this project we removed the old small deck and expanded to approx. 850 sqft. Unique challenges were to create an under deck car port, work around a house design that wasn't square or plumb. In addition, we we're under a very tight deadline to ensure that we completed the deck before a wedding party in record time during a very wet spring. Note the metal railing with Douglas-Fir posts, cocktail rail.
