A neglected row house deck gets a winning makeover using low-maintenance materials.
The homeowners of this rowhouse wanted to revive their neglected deck, improve deck access from the kitchen, and use low-maintenance materials.
Architect Richard Loosle's design included reconstructing a breakfast nook addition. An open-grate steel bridge leads to the new ipe deck over the garage.
The new kitchen/breakfast nook addition has a wall of full-height windows and a glass door provides easy access to the deck.
Blue and white resin panels are interspersed between ipe slats to provide privacy and add a modern touch.
