Gabberts Design Studio
The architect helped supply the wood decking, I just approved the color, so I don’t have the details of the wood. I would refer you to Martel Construction in Montana for the construction details.

Thank you,
Karlene Hunter Baum

I was responsible for the material selection which is wood and glass. It is a groove cut but I would have to refer you to the builder, Martel Construction in Montana for more specifics regarding the construction. Good luck!

Is that glass or plexiglass in the railing? Thank you.

right Noah!

interestingly, sometimes using wood railings can do the job less expensively, and not really deter the the view while seated on the deck,as well as inside just see what is inview below the cap of the railing

Merry Christmas

Are glass railings difficult to keep clean? How much maintenance is involved in cleaning? We're on a lake (in ontario) with bugs, wind etc.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 30 Dream Decks for Lounge Lovers
This wraparound deck gives continuous views of the mountains and the lake. I think this must have been where they got the line about "purple mountain majesties" in the song "America the Beautiful."
