Custom Deck Takes Advantage of a Great View

The decking is Ipe, screwed and plugged. The deck and stair railing posts are tight grain old growth western red cedar, while the deck’s segmented top cap is yellow balau. The curved stair handrail is laminated red balau. Click on the images below for project details.
