to fit this
grand home. A curved section with curved staircase allows
flow wherever you place furniture. A very large home with a stately
presence on the water demanded an over the top platform that blended
with the home's facade, of course hiding the rough edges and awkward
height. We wanted the view from the hot tub to be stellar--but you be

curved deck. The treads were laminated from solid lumber using
waterproof epoxy, rather than store bought products that don't last.
All parts were pre-finished for durability.
The photo above shows a deck with a very
custom rail, designed in a florida style, (notice the cedar trees in
the background--they only grow in northern climates), however that is
the look they were after. This kind of detail is difficult to build
since the guard rail size dictates the angles the parts need to be cut
to for the pattern to work. Every miter cut is a different angle and
Deck designs should
draw the eye to the view. It should be an extension of the living area
and frame or accent your view. This very large ground level deck was
designed to belend with the beach.
The above pictures show a deck that

canopy, and gave it glass rails so as not to obstruct the garden.
Custom braces and post caps dress up the simple pergola structure, and
we prefinished all the materials so that it would age gracefully.

curved deck in the trees. A steep slope, and a view of the golf course
prohibited using glass in the rails--it is just too difficult to clean
up broken glass after the odd stray golf ball! The rail and
skirting is also curved to give a look of permanence to this design.
of a curved deck with brick supports. The masonry columns were added to
help the deck blend better with the home. The awkward height, (4-5'),
made it necessary for there to be something different in the design to
look right. Utilizing the masonry was just the trick. A large masonry
home needs some masonry in the deck to give it permanence.
