The Design Issues here were pretty simple, to expand their outdoor living space, and take advantage of a nice Southerly view across San Diego.

The Deck's Main Beam and Posts are rough sawn western red cedar, for appearance, while the Ledger Board on the house, and Floor Joists are pressure treated douglas fir. We use mostly stainless steel fasteners and connectors due to the corrosive nature of the new

Pressure Treated material.

The Decking is 1x6" ipe, screwed and plugged. The Cable Railing Posts are 2x4" Ipe and the railing's Top Cap is 5/4x6" Ipe. Stainless steel cable wire completes the railing.

All of the Pergola components are also w.r cedar,

and the shade material is Bamboo.

Joe is an artist! Joe designed and built a beautiful deck for us. Joe used his extensive talent to design a deck that is functional art. He worked with us to design within our budget and now we have an amazing deck that is the focal point of the house. Joe's attention to detail is evident in the construction of the deck. Every piece every from the cedar beams to the plugs to cover the screws are perfect.
