Above is the original site drawing for the deck. The finished deck retained the original shape but the step down to the existing deck was eliminated when it was decided to not use the existing deck.
These are the concept drawings for the railing and eight foot privacy screens that were going to be built into the west end of the deck. It was decided that the screens wouldn't be needed and became the basis of the idea for the Yard Screens.
The main support beams are finished in the first image. The joists are done in the second and the decking is starting to be laid while the posts for the rail are being set.
Three views of the finished deck with some snowy footprints.
