This deck was built for an interior designer's own home, therefore this deck was both about design and functionality. The deck needed to fit in with the home and landscaping, well. It also had to contain a hot tub and a lounging area. A concrete sump with a pumping system was constructed so the hot tub could be partially sunk into the ground and thus sit even with the top of the deck. This made it look as if the hot tub had been mounted onto the deck. A wooden and plexiglass pergola was constructed so the hot tub could be used during rainy days. Two seperate lighting systems were installed, one lighting the edge of the deck and stairs and the other providing illumination to the deck surface from lights mounted on the fence posts. The decking used was a low maintenance composite decking manufactured by TimberTech. The decking used a hidden clip system so no nails or screws are visible on top of the deck. The client being and interior designer, had no difficulty adding additional wow factor to the deck, buy choosing the appropriate pots, plants and lawn furniture.
