Custom Hardwood Deck with Under-Deck Drainage System

DBS built this stunning, custom hardwood deck using Tigerwood, a Brazilian hardwood that is popular because of its unique coloring. Laying the deck boards at a 45-degree angle to the joists enhances the shade variations of the wood. The railing is built with wood components painted in white, Fortress balusters in Black Sand, and the drink cap is in Tigerwood to create a stark contrast. The elevated deck required quite a few stairs, so we built them using a 90-degree turn landing. The homeowners wanted to create a secondary area for outdoor entertaining, so we added an under-deck drainage system. It has a flat ceiling done in tongue and groove pine. Adding this allowed the homeowners to create two outdoor living spaces by building just one deck.
