Americans often attribute characteristics of symmetry, balance, and peace with Asian-inspired art and architecture. The philosophical and design concept of feng shui emphasizes the need to have harmony between people and their environment.
This second story deck is part new construction and part refurbishment. The existing deck was in disrepair and we resurfaced it with Timbertech Earthwood Evolutions Legacy in pecan color. Then we extended it further out into the yard in a half-moon shape. The extra six feet of Columbus rounded deck is supported by columns and a beam and fits beautifully into the existing landscape. We trimmed the new columns to match the existing ones. Creating a round or curved deck with composite materials like Timbertech takes some expertise. You need to first carefully heat the boards before you are able to install them in your desired shape as
Even the wet conditions in which we took these project photos can’t hide the beauty and harmony of the picture frame decking done in TimberTech walnut and pecan. The separation of the halves within the rounded whole evoke the Yin/Yang symbol. The hidden lock fasteners used to secure the decking ensure that your eye sees only uninterrupted lines. It will doubtless be even more stunning come spring when the garden and trees are in bloom.
Every detail of this project was done with an eye toward beauty and utility. We remanufactured the gate to mimic the original that the owners loved. It limits access to the lower stairway for the safety of children and pets. You can barely see the dimmable post lights during the day, but in the evenings they provide plenty of light for either entertaining or relaxation. Black Pegatha aluminum rails were installed in short angles to blend with the deck curve.
The icing on the cake of this project was some touch-up detailing we did on the area under the pergola and the landing of the stairway. The spruced up pergola has a rubber roof to provide protection from sun and rain. The landing got a bump-out extension for a grill. The flow from home to deck to landing to yard flows like a river to the sea–it’s gorgeous.
