Deck - I am being told that a deck can not be on "ground level"--that the wood or composite needs air movement beneath the decking material. How was this built level with the ground? Thanks very much

Installed properly, A deck can be built at ground level. Yes, wood and composites need air movement beneath them. The correct care needs to be taken when installing the frame and the decking. Proper drainage should be accounted for. You should also make sure that the decking you use is sealed on all sides. There is always a chance that the boards could start cupping because of the difference in moisture levels from the underside of the board to the top. The only wood we would ever install at ground level is 5/4 IPE because of its stability. Thanks for the question!

The ceiling is made with custom milled lap and gap tigerwood with a TWP sealant. Thanks for the question!

Atlantic Patio Furniture
Background chairs look very cool in this setting. I think they are Oxford Garden Travira. http://atlanticpatio.com/seating/beach-chairs/oxford-garden-travira-beach-chair-2-pack.html

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. Set up outdoor furniture. If you haven’t yet gotten the outdoor furniture out of storage, now is the time. Give everything a good cleaning, and go shopping for new pieces as needed. Wish you had an outdoor dining area or place to sit with a good book? Jump on the project now so that you have all season to enjoy using it.2. Tune up lawn mower and gas grill. Make sure all of your outdoor equipment is in working order. Stock up on the types of fuel you will need to run your lawn mower and gas grill. If you have a reel lawn mower (i.e., a push mower), take it in to have the blades sharpened.
