The original area was a small concrete patio under the covered area. We decided to make it a deck, all they way between the garage and house to create an outdoor mulit-living area. We used Trex Composite Decking in the Enhance Natural Series. The main decking color is Toasted Sand, then double picture framed the areas with Coastal Bluff – which these 2 colors work out great together. We then installed the Westbury Full Aluminum Railing in the Tuscany Series in black. Finish touches were Post Cap Lights and then dot lights on the stair risers. New large area for entertaining which the homeowners will love.

Archadeck of Austin
The deck we built spans 32 ft. × 16 ft., a wonderfully spacious area for relaxing, soaking up the sun and watching the swimmers below. Keep in mind, this deck is 10 ft. above grade! We used four steel posts to support the deck structure. For their low-maintenance deck, these West Austin homeowners selected PVC decking from AZEK’s Vintage Collection in English Walnut. We designed the deck with a parting board and perimeter board. No rough edges around this deck!

Gulf-Front Grandeur Private Residence / Alys Beach, Florida Architect: Khoury & Vogt Architects Builder: Hufham Farris Construction --- This one-of-a-kind Gulf-front residence in the New Urbanism community of Alys Beach, Florida, is truly a stunning piece of architecture matched only by its views. E. F. San Juan worked with the Alys Beach Town Planners at Khoury & Vogt Architects and the building team at Hufham Farris Construction on this challenging and fulfilling project. We supplied character white oak interior boxed beams and stair parts. We also furnished all of the interior trim and paneling. The exterior products we created include ipe shutters, gates, fascia and soffit, handrails, and newels (balcony), ceilings, and wall paneling, as well as custom columns and arched cased openings on the balconies. In addition, we worked with our trusted partners at Loewen to provide windows and Loewen LiftSlide doors. Challenges: This was the homeowners’ third residence in the area for which we supplied products, and it was indeed a unique challenge. The client wanted as much of the exterior as possible to be weathered wood. This included the shutters, gates, fascia, soffit, handrails, balcony newels, massive columns, and arched openings mentioned above. The home’s Gulf-front location makes rot and weather damage genuine threats. Knowing that this home was to be built to last through the ages, we needed to select a wood species that was up for the task. It needed to not only look beautiful but also stand up to those elements over time. Solution: The E. F. San Juan team and the talented architects at KVA settled upon ipe (pronounced “eepay”) for this project. It is one of the only woods that will sink when placed in water (you would not want to make a boat out of ipe!). This species is also commonly known as ironwood because it is so dense, making it virtually rot-resistant, and therefore an excellent choice for the substantial pieces of millwork needed for this project. However, ipe comes with its own challenges; its weight and density make it difficult to put through machines and glue. These factors also come into play for hinging when using ipe for a gate or door, which we did here. We used innovative joining methods to ensure that the gates and shutters had secondary and tertiary means of support with regard to the joinery. We believe the results speak for themselves! --- Photography by Layne Lillie, courtesy of Khoury & Vogt Architects
