Custom Hardwood Deck with Dry Space Creates Two Areas for Entertaining

 

DBS built this stunning, custom hardwood deck using Tiger Wood, a Brazilian hardwood that is popular because of its unique coloring. Laying the deck boards at a 45-degree angle to the joists enhances the shade variations of the wood. The railing is built with wood components painted in white, round metal balusters in black, and for the drink cap, we used Tiger Wood to create a stark contrast. The elevated deck required quite a few stairs, so we built them using a 90-degree turn landing. The homeowners wanted to create a secondary area for outdoor entertaining, so we added a dry space underneath the deck. It has a flat ceiling done in tongue and groove pine. Adding the dry space allowed the customer to create two outdoor living spaces by just building one deck.
