Amazing Composite Deck with Custom Rail & Dry Space
Our customer had an existing but very small deck. They loved the outdoor space but wanted a much larger, more comfortable area where they could entertain. Going through the design process, the customers decided on a straight-line (90 degrees), Fiberon composite deck built on a long-lasting, durable, galvanized steel frame. The divider boards give the deck a refined look while eliminating the butt seams. In addition, the homeowner wanted a modern, non-obstructive railing. Working with them, we designed a clean-looking, metal, and stainless steel cable railing system. We also built a wide, open stairway that allows the customer to access another living area built underneath the deck. This area was created by constructing a dry space with a Colorado beetle-kill pine (also known as Blue Stain Pine), tongue and groove ceiling under the steel frame. To add to the ambiance of the lower living area, we installed recessed can lights and a swing for the owner’s enjoyment.
