Here’s a very large 500 square foot deck I built in South Portland. The guardrail was built from Douglas Fir and the Classic Aluminum Balusters from Deckorators. The homeowner applied a clear UV sealer to the decking and guardrail to prevent the wood from graying.
View from the back. The deck is 32 feet wide and 22 feet deep. The railing has a total of 188 balusters.
The deck had a single set of 4 foot wide stairs to the backyard. I milled a handrail from Douglas fir to match the guardrail.
A view of the carrying beam. I used clamps and ratcheting tie downs to roll the carrying beam plumb.
Detail of the top rail. Love how the tight grain looks.
