Raised Deck with Curved Staircase

Sometimes, the underside of the deck is as important as the deck.

The deck design was simple: the circle and the square. Access to doors, a large dining area with a view, and an outdoor kitchen were included. A pergola over the kitchen helps provide some privacy.

A curved staircase leads to the lower level and existing patio.

Framing was treated southern yellow pine with treated Parallams to limit the number of columns underneath. Trex RainEscape keeps us dry and allows us to use recessed lighting and a ceiling fan.

Girders and columns are wrapped in Azek with stone piers at the base. A painted 1x4 Boral ceiling finishes the underside and allows us to incorporate the house colors.
