Three Steps to a Great Deck Design:

Maximize Your View

Even though you’re about to build a gorgeous deck, a deck can never look as nice as a home’s own yard and landscaping.  A deck should complement your surroundings and emphasize views.


Design Your Deck to Match the Scale of Your House

As a rule of thumb, we never design a single section of a deck larger than the largest section of your house.
We duplicate shapes and angles that exist within a home.
The deck should look like it belongs to the house it is attached to. Not an after thought.


Choose Your Focus

Lines and Angles can Change the Appearance of a Deck

A person wearing a shirt with horizontal stripes appears heavier and shorter. A shirt with vertical stripes makes them appear taller and thinner, The same rule is true for your decks.  We can direct your view toward a beautiful pond or away from a water tower by using diagonal decking.
