Remodel a deck

This is a 20-year-old deck, really big one, multi-level, solid build, but was not well maintained by the previous owner in the past few years.

So the new owner of the house found me, and we worked out a remodel plan, we will rip-off all the surfaces, fix the framing, make some modification to meet the new owners’ need, and finish it with cedar lumber.

this is the deck before:

While we are working on it

After we finish it

Now, it is a new deck again, can serve another 20 years!

Sorry we did not got a chance to take pictures after the railings installed, but yes, it does have railings that meet our local building code.

Deck with a Gazebo on it

If you would like a sitting area on the deck to have some roof, put a gazebo on the deck is a very good choice.

In this case, we put a prefabricate gazebo on our custom designed deck, we shape the deck area to a octangle shape, to match the base of gazebo and we made new railing for the gazebo to match the deck railing, so after everything is done, the gazebo looks like a custom build one, not a prefabricate one.

This saves my customer thousands of dollars, with a excellent appearance~~
