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 a 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.
