This 220 square foot deck replaces an older deck of similar footprint. Care was taken in the design to not disrupt the vegetation directly adjacent to the deck while reducing the cantilevers to code.
The area below the deck serves as a storage space for wood for a wood-burning fireplace.
A picture framed deck border was added in addition to changing the decking to 5/4″ radius edge brown PT. A further change included updating the guard from cantilevered wood picket to metal pickets with wood rails. The piers were constructed with belled out concrete footings.
