These homeowners wanted to build two separate areas for entertaining and relaxing with a walkway between them. Working with them, we designed this Heart Redwood deck with a herringbone design and a double picture frame border. We stained the decking with a semi-transparent (Level 2) and the picture frame border in a solid body (Level 3). The railing is a custom design built in wrought iron at the homeowners’ request. They also had an older shade tree that they wanted to keep, so we built the deck around the tree to accommodate the request. Now, the owners have a fantastic deck they enjoy all year long!
