Our customer had a small but not very functional deck that they wanted to replace with a much larger outdoor living space. After discussing design ideas with us, the customer decided to build a 45-degree angle composite deck with a large, vaulted ceiling in tongue and groove knotty Pine featuring recessed can lights. The homeowner also wanted to incorporate a custom, wood-burning, stucco fireplace, which features two built-in areas for wood storage. DBS built three stucco half-walls to complement the home and provide privacy in the seating area. These allow access to the hot tub area but still keep out prying eyes. We added a glass windbreak and built-in steps with lighting around the hot tub to assure maximum functionality. The glass walls ensure that the homeowner has unobstructed views and the most usability.

Dark Pine 3 - Part of the deck is covered by a large, vaulted, knotty pine, tongue and groove ceiling with recessed lights and an antler chandelier.
Dark Pine 4 - The composite decking was laid at 45-degrees to the joists, and the railing is composite with metal balusters.
Dark Pine 5 - The custom-designed elevated deck was designed to allow for maximum comfort and, on one-half, privacy.
Dark Pine 6 - The hot tub is accessed via two built-in steps with stair lights. DBS also installed glass panes on top of the stucco half-wall to provide protection against the wind but still keep the view unimpeded.
