This extensive outdoor living project included a stucco-clad patio cover, large deck, and a new 5-panel patio door.
How an engineered design with unusually beefy cantilevered beams allowed part of this large deck to be built over a municipal sewer easement.
Lateral support for this elevated, freestanding California deck comes from its grade-beam footing and engineered steel columns.
Before giving this old deck a facelift, builder Michael Walter needed to correct a major ledger problem.
A curved cantilevered deck adds an elegant accent to this water feature.
