This beautiful home on the water needed a deck to transition with the hillside slope.  A landing outside of french doors steps down to a large deck area with a pergola overhead and bar sitting area above outdoor kitchen looking out to the water.  The deck then steps down again to an area perfect for dining with a natural stone built in barbeque.  This level also has a stone sitting wall instead of railing to allow for unobstructed water views.  Decking material is Ipe and painted Cedar facia and step risers.   It is beauiful and functional and ties seamlessly with the interior, creating a feeling of inside and outside working together.

FR FR writes: Outstanding deck. The combination of stone and decking is really nice. Would you mind telling me whether the kitchen was built on the deck framing or did you pour or block a concrete foundation?
