Creating Seamless Additions

My clients on this project have an old house with a lovely secluded back yard which they wanted to enjoy more of the time. As the house is an original Arts and Craft style they wanted the deck to blend with the house to continue the shingled Arts and Craft look.

Only a year after the deck was completed they approached me about the possibility of adding a Spa area the following summer. Again we discussed their vision, how they thought they would use it, and we came up with a plan that included a covered sitting area beside the spa. It was important that access to the spa be easy and flow from the existing deck. They were also pleased with the choice of pressure treated decking as the only maintenance they had to do was to clean it a couple of times a year.The addition was started in the late spring after a pad for the spa had been poured and the spa had been delivered. The plan was that it would be finished in time for a planned gathering of all their children and grand children in August.
