Large Redwood Deck with Stucco Columns

The homeowners had a large deck that needed to be replaced.  Working with them through the design phase, they decided to stay with the design of the original deck as they felt it suited their house and landscaping.  The deck is built with ConCommon Redwood at a 90-degree angle to the joists with single dividing boards.  We built a staircase with a 180-degree turn landing so the outdoor living area below the deck could be easily accessed.  The support posts are 12″ x 12″ stucco and feature an arch between.  The deck and railing have been stained in PPG Russet solid body.  The owners are truly enjoying their outdoor living space and the gorgeous views they have off the deck.
