For this coastal deck project we built a second story structure to take full advantage of the incredible views. We wanted to make the new outdoor space an extension of the living room. We replaced two of the windows with a sliding glass door that opened to the deck from the living room. To ensure durability in the coastal environment, we used stainless steel hardware. The gray decking boards chosen complimented the home’s coastal aesthetic. We then installed the Azek Reserve Rail, matching the existing railing exactly. This particular railing has a larger profile, serving as a sturdy enough spot to place a small appetizer plate and a glass of wine. Finally, we clad the entire framing structure with white PVC boards. The new deck addition fit so well with the existing home that it looks as if it was always meant to be there.
One of the biggest challenges of this coastal deck project was ensuring that everything was in full compliance with city and state regulations. In particular, the new deck required a variance as well as town and state permits. We collaborated with the homeowner, town and state to get the project approved and scheduled to build.
It was such a pleasure to build this coastal deck. Despite the frigid winter temperatures the views were undeniably beautiful, but it won’t be cold for long. Our clients are ready to enjoy warm beach days on their new outdoor space this summer.
