Raised Timber Deck with Stainless Steel Balustrade
This project had us building a deck on the second floor of a very attractive two-storey brick home.
The stained timber finish matches the warmth of the original brick structure, maintaining harmony in the overall design.
The decking joists sit securely on a bearer we fastened to the brick wall.
The other end of the deck is elevated by timber posts fastened directly atop the brick plant box below.
The posts extend upward to provide the structure for the balustrade, maintaining clean, consistent vertical lines that gives a sense of stability and strength.
Stainless steel cabling run horizontally across the balustrade, providing protection and a modern aesthetic.
The result is a beautiful and functional balcony structure for this uniquely styled home.
