They wanted a rear deck, but did not want to obstruct their view

We met some wonderful folks that purchased a house in Fort Valley. The views were incredible, but it lacked a rear deck. They gave us a call and presented the challenge: they wanted a rear deck, but did not want to obstruct their views with columns.

Fort Valley Deck

We visited the site and evaluated the conditions. Since we did not know the existing footing situation under the existing house we needed to be creative with supporting the new structure. We also wanted to add a deck across the entire rear of the home – with as few columns as possible. So we developed a strategy to create a walkway along the edge of the house to connect two modest sized decks – preserving the light into the main room of the basement and the views out of all the windows.
