Amazing Outdoor Living Area with Deck Cover and Glass Windbreak


This house is located in Monument on a lot with incredible views. The customer wanted to design and build a deck that took advantage of those views but provided some protection from the wind. In collaboration with the homeowner, DBS designed the deck to include multiple custom elements specific to this homeowner. We built a custom composite deck with the boards at a 45-degree angle and added a double picture frame border. The handcrafted railing is comprised of twisted, basket-design balusters. In addition, the customer wished to use a piece of metal art they found in their travels as the centerpiece of the railing. Working together, we created a custom design that showcased the art. It is a metal railing with twisted balusters featuring a basket design. Adding glass walls to the southwest end of the deck allows the customer and their guests to enjoy the fire pit and views of Pike’s Peak in a calm setting. The result of all the custom design work is a deck that provides the homeowners an outdoor living and dining area with views beyond compare.
