This homeowner had a growing family and wanted to expand there current deck. The original deck frame was good and up to today’s building codes. We decided to resurface (install new decking and railing – keep framing), then expand the outdoor living space with a new 16×16 deck next to the original deck. We installed Cedar Decking with a picture frame board in the middle for a custom look and cost effective way of using material. The decking was Cedar Decking and Cedar Post Rail with Black Straight Traditional Spindles made by Deckorator. Previously, the homeowner built a cool landing with a slide for the kid using the existing post footings from the original deck – great idea!! So we built the new deck footings around the slide so the kids could still use that area. The homeowners now have over twice the size of the original deck so they can enjoy it much easier with a larger family and friends. This deck project took us 2 days after the footings were inspected. The homeowners love the deck and will have many years to enjoy their new space!!
