Convex Curved Deck
In preparation for retirement this couple wanted to create a low-maintenance backyard. They had an existing wood deck which was original to the home. With their children married and more grandkids on the way they decided a total tear out would be best to make room for a new deck design.
They were looking for something larger and grander than what they previously were used to. Incorporating a built-in kitchen area as well as screen porch to provide protection from bugs was another goal of the project. The existing tree which the family had learned to love had to stay and although it did make a mess, the shade it offered was worth the hassle of leaves on the deck.
Trex Transcends decking was selected for its deep rich color and wood like texture. Matching the decking was a Trex Transcends railing system with black aluminum balusters. The benches on the deck allowed some room for overflow seating when all the family would come together. Living in Northeast Ohio this family realized that the time to enjoy the outdoors is for a season. Investing into their time outside as a family was money well spent.
The convex curves on this deck flow into the back yard. The second phase of this project is to install a patio and firepit at the base of the steps. This will help extend their outdoor season when the evenings cool down and allow for more space should the tribe grow larger.
