Kid and dog-friendly deck adds value to this home
My latest deck installation was more tricky than usual because it was so low. The finished height of the deck was 9″ above the ground! An outdoor kitchen was also installed, extending their useable living space by 450 square feet! The close proximity to the ground made this deck extremely useable and kid friendly.
We used two triple 2″x8″ beams to keep the deck at the existing door-wall height.
The decking used was Fiberon brand with hidden fasteners.
A built-in trap door for the crawl space was also required AND the deck incorporated a fire-pit.
