What is used for roofing under deck?
Looks great! What type of material is used for ceiling under the deck? Does water drain off the wood / composite ceiling into the gutter system.... or is there a PVC panel hidden by the wood /composite ceiling?
bricks for patio are outside the supports
I like the idea that the under deck could be used as a sheltered dining area, as we do want a two level deck/patio...what if some of the boards

What is the stain and type of wood on the deck?
The deck is so beautiful!! How do you put lights in it?
They are a 1 watt LED deck light in copper, but you can get them in 316 grade stainless steel. They require a driver to run the lights and any qualified electrician can install

Martha, the patio-cum-entertaining-area has everything you need under one roof for easy and relaxed gatherings. The outdoor kitchen and dining suite are all under cover, while the extended timber deck can be utilised for big family functions or parties.SHOW USHave you renovated your patio area recently

Could those deck tiles be installed on top of an existing patio?
I have just recently moved into a house and have some patio furniture, but don't have the time to put in a patio right now, so wondering
have this problem? Some sort of manmade material like Trex decking?
Aesthetically, I love the appearance of this deck. I have never walked on an Ipe or Teak tiled deck--does it feel not as "solid" as a standard deck?
What is the decking material made of?
Could you tell me who makes the wooden arm chairs for the deck?
We removed the existing brick patio, so we had enough height to flush out with all the doors.
How would this deck stand up to harsh winter weather? Love your design!
great idea to cover an existing deck or patio

Pretty! Is the upper level deck a 'roof' for under? Or does water run through?
What color deck stain is this?
What type of materials are on the top of the deck?
The deck is not waterproofed to shed water beneath. We have done details for similar situations where we have had a screen porch or finished room below a deck or patio. We have used a membrane similar to a normal "flat" roof under a deck, but the final product would depend

What is the under the deck
Angelim is the hardwood used for the deck and we used a TWP pecan sealer. Thanks! We love the deck as well!
Love! What type of wood was used on the deck? What kind of stain is on the deck?
you have any images of this deck during construction?
The deck is conventionally framed using treated pine. There is also a limestone retaining wall underneath that is not visible. This deck actually sits on a significant
significant slope. The near part of the deck is at ground level and the far is about 9 feet above the ground. So much goes into what you never see! Thanks for the question!

Which deck stain did you use here?
Mr. Miyagi: "Show me 'sand the floor'". Beautiful deck but I think of that scene from Karate Kid.
wonderful! Couple of questions. Was the bridge designed with support from below? What size/type of wood is along the edges of the deck?
Hi Susan and Aburpee, From the look of the deck it seems if they used a UV inhibitor Oil. Usually Ipe doesn't take staining well because of its density. We usually recommend
Messmer's UV Plus. These two oils have worked wonderfully for all Ipe, Tigerwood, Cumaru, and many other hardwoods. Here are some pictures of finished decks. That have used Ipe Oil or Messmer's Hope this helps.

I am deciding between a deck vs a patio. Which do you prefer?
Hi, I want to build a wood patio. What type of wood should I use to get a long lasting nice finish. Julie
Love the multi-hued deck! Sure would appreciate it if you would share the brand/color of the exterior stains
Love the multi-hued deck! Sure would appreciate it if you would list the brand(s) and colors of the various exerior stains. Thank you:)
Did this Ipe deck experience cupping and unevenness?
would suggest a patio but if you have excess room around 10-12 inches you have plenty of room for a deck. You just want to be mindful that whatever you choose is not creating more labor (which ups the cost) than would be required for the other option. In short don't put a patio where a deck should be or

The deck provides a stepped transition to the garden.

I am redoing my deck. I like this idea
Working with a patio. Sometimes we think we should have either a deck or a patio, but not both. Not so, says Jeswald. A deck and patio can work very well together, especially on a sloping site, or when you want to make a graceful transition between inside and outside with a few feet of height between
between the two. In this example, a small deck area with a broad flight of steps to the patio allows for that gradual transition.

Is the deck just laying on the ground?
How is the deck attached to the ground? Did you use footing?

Is this wood deck built "over" a concrete patio? We have a concrete patio that must be 53 yrs old. Originally,
responses, so sorry if I am repeating question. Please let me know where you got the chairs and table thank you so much. THe deck is gorgeous
Salterini patio chairs. They are from the 1960's but you can still get them used online. Very cool, not cheap
Hit there, is this an Ipe wood deck? If so, do you have to apply a sealant in order for the tannins to not leach into the pool? We're looking at installing an overhanging deck around fiberglass
No, there is no concrete under the wood deck. You can build over an old concrete patio if you core the existing concrete for your new piers.
