This new +/- 520 square foot deck replaced the existing two-tier deck. As well as a small gain in square footage compared to the original, this replacement deck provides more usable space by eliminating multiple flights of stairs.
The aesthetic of the deck was also improved to include a wood/aluminium railing system, sleeker skirting, and patterned + picture framed decking boards. The stairs , including a built-in gate, were relocated to the corner of the deck and placed at an angle. All framing lumber used was brown PT.
