This 2-tier, 362 square foot deck replaces an existing similar, but aging deck. While layout and size remained similar, a step was added to grade as required by code.
2×6 brown PT. decking with picture framing has been installed on the diagonal on the upper tier, accompanied by guard comprised of wood posts and rails and metal balusters. The lower tier does not require a guard due to its proximity to grade. Piers with concrete belled footings support the deck.
