Contemporary Home, Gloucester
Every project has its challenges and this deck renovation had a few of them. The framing beams of the deck were continuous and part of the house framing. Some of the deck beams were rotting and had to be replaced, so a special steel connection was made to securely fasten the new deck beam after the rotten ones were removed. Not only did we renovate the main deck of the house, the owner wanted to add a roof deck and take advantage of the additional height to see across the wooded landscape below. Custom post connectors were fabricated to minimize the penetrations into the low pitched roof. A two-story spiral staircase was designed so people could make their way from the backyard all the way up to the roof deck. The softness of the mahogany decking and top rail blends nicely with the thin lines of the cable rail system, allowing us to maximize views for a relaxing experience all summer long.
