Fresh Start – Deck

As usually happens, once work was underway on their kitchen remodeling project, these owners were so pleased with the transformation in the house that they decided to enlist our help in renovating their dysfunctional deck and backyard. The owners had a couple of large dogs that needed to be corralled, and their backyard did not have adequate perimeter fencing. We all felt that it would be to their advantage to be able to provide a play space for the pups, while at the same time making it possible to entertain on the deck without the dogs joining in.    

We were able to re-use a small portion of an existing black aluminum fence to create a play yard for the pups and a secure area between the house and backyard. Unfortunately, the old deck’s structure was under-sized and rotten,  requiring total replacement. We used maintenance-free deck floor boards from Timbertech’s vintage collection: English Walnut and Coastline Grey in a two-toned installation.

A six-foot tall panel was added at one end of the deck providing a nice separation between a parking pad and the neighbors. A high bar on the grilling deck provides a spot to place a drink grill and gives owners and guests a place to rest as they look out back towards the yard.
