Small, Cozy and Functionalcomments (1) April 23rd, 2009 in Project Gallery
Houses in the city often have small yards and, thus, small decks.
By keeping the safety rails toward the outside of the deck I managed to gain the maximum useable space while minimizing that which it took from the yard. Built-in seating precludes the need for patio chairs.
Built-in planters allow the owner/gardener plenty of room for growing flowers, and the the Japanese style pergola provides the ideal amount of shade for her orchids.
Trex composite decking was used for the deck and stair treds, and even used to build the planters.
