A customer in Falmouth with a newer home and large backyard wanted a low maintenance deck durable enough to stand up to tough Maine winters. I modified an existing design provided by the homeowner and built a custom 52′ x 12′ deck using Ipe, one of the most durable hardwoods available, and powder coated aluminum posts. Materials like the cablerail result in an unobstructed view of this wooded backyard . Give me a call or send me an email if you are interested in building a deck. Whether you have your own design, have ideas, or need a custom design, I will work with you to build something you and your family will enjoy.
