Creekside Cottage-Kiawah Island

Photo Credit: Holger Obenaus

Description: Built as a refuge for a busy California couple, this creek-side cottage was constructed on land populated with ancient live oaks; sited to preserve the oaks and accentuate the creek-side vistas. The owners wanted their Kiawah home to be less formal than their primary residence, ensuring that it would accommodate 3 – 4 vacationing couples. Volumes, room shapes and arrangements provide classical symmetries, while careful detailing with variations in colors, finishes and furnishings provide soothing spaces for relaxation.

That's a very beautiful pool deck. The Ipe seems to be left to weather. How much clearance was left under the deck?

CT Deck Pros
When building a ground deck ventilation is key. Space boards adequately to allow for good air flow. Ipe grows in swamps so this product would do well in this low/wet environment.

Could we add a wood edge to the pool after installing the pavers? It would be a softer seat with a smooth edge. How do you properly seal it, though?
