A customer in Falmouth requested a low maintenance deck durable enough to stand up to tough Maine winters. I modified the homeowner’s original design and built a custom 52′ x 12′ deck using Ipe, one of the most durable hardwoods available. Stainless steel cable with low-profile powder coated aluminum posts provide an unobstructed view of the wooded backyard .
