It has been a long, cool spring but some of our clients are thinking about exterior projects for the summer. Last week we started a nice deck job. The work includes a main stairway entrance to the home. Tucked along side the building the stairway and landings make a nice transition from the ground to the upper entrance level. Large landscape boulders will be placed along side the deck/stairway when we are done.

This deck finish material is Ipe.also called Brazilian cherry. It is a very, very tough material for decks and seems to hold up very well in our climate. It is hard enough that the carpenters need to drill holes for the fasteners.
