One of the challenges we come across often as we design walkout elevated decks is the column/post placement. It’s never appealing to have a window or door looking out at a column. This deck would typically have a minimum of 3 posts, but since we kept the design simple, we were able to make the 20’ span with just 2 posts by upgrading to an engineered beam. The result is an unobstructed view from the walk-out basement.
With a purposely simple design, it’s the details and finishes that bring this particular deck to life and give it a great feel. The client opted for a triangular pergola to break up the square, allowing for a place for hanging plants. A deck drain system was also added under the decking so no rain would fall onto the patio below.
In the end, the owners ended up with two well-designed outdoor living spaces: an upper deck with sun exposure, and a lower patio area protected from the rain and the sun. The curved paver patio and privacy landscaping add the finishing touches to this beautiful backyard space.
Thank you for the outstanding job you did on our deck and patio!
We love your design and the workmanship is top notch. Your design looks very natural and complements the landscape.
