As a carpenter, I decided to specialize in decks 12 years ago
because they weren't getting the attention I thought they
deserved in the upscale communities in which I worked.
Twelve years later as a contractor I'm still designing and
building decks for a living with my crew of four.
Although my market area is ideal — warm climate, a lot of disposable
income, and an appreciation for design and craftsmanship —
decks and porches are getting increased attention in many areas. And
just as clients have become more sophisticated about the design of
their homes, they are beginning to expect more than just a wood rectangle
