The handrails are built using 6x6's and the handrails are a continuous 2x8 that provide strength, a great look, and much more usefulness than a typical handrail.
The original deck was completely torn down and rebuilt to a single level.
The handrails, the pergola, and matching bird feeder pergola were added.
Before - The original covered porch area.
The new deck is a single level and the pergola was built to proper codes and can support the porch swing the home owner has been wanting for years.
A beautiful and relaxing view from inside the screened porch.
The new screened in porch area fits perfectly into the existing architecture and protects the home owner and her guests from mosquitoes and other pests during the warmer months.
The finished deck is all one level with a new pergola and matching smaller pergola for the bird feeders making this the outdoor living space the home owner envisioned.
The original deck was in poor condition, was multi-level (a trip hazard), and the pergola was not structurally sound.
Because the deck was a dark color, it was difficult to see the level changes and became a trip hazard.
