Two-Story Deck with Three Season Room
This custom deck is a two-story, 3-season room, composite add-on. The enclosed 3-season room comprises the lower level, which includes a natural tongue and groove ceiling with recessed, dimmable lighting. The customer wanted to find a way to have access to light breezes in good weather, but did not want the room completely open to the elements. To accomplish this, DBS installed two sliding glass doors in opposite corners of the deck/room. We also installed two large sliding patio doors for access to the three-season room from the house, which provide a beautiful view from inside. The composite decking in the three-season room is laid at 45 degrees to the joists, with a double picture frame in a contrasting color. To complement the house, stucco columns were built to support the two-story deck. The customer chose to finish off the upper deck with a composite railing and metal balusters featuring a basket design for a more contemporary look.
