No. It was very specifically designed for the needs of this client and in order to best suit this site.

This is beautiful! We aware about to restain an 80s deck house and wondered if you recall what was used on this home? I love the contrast of the dark railings and the wood siding.

Hello. This roof deck is constructed like any "flat" roof with a plastic membrane sloped to scuppers w/ downspouts. Concrete pavers supported by pedestals are then placed on top of this surface. The water flows through the gaps in the pavers to the membrane surface below.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Dreaming Of: A House in the Woods
Another beautiful modern home, this time surrounded by majestic pines that practically touch the sky. Heck, even the house practically touches the sky. Here is another great example of how a boxy home can feel just right when it's surrounded by trees.
One of the more popular modern houses on Houzz is this residence overlooking Flowing Lake. Glass exterior walls reach toward the lake, as does a terrace off to the side. The roof terrace is an especially nice touch that lifts people that much higher into the trees.
