The Grown-up Deck
Kim and Brad just spent a lot of time and money laying down stone in their backyard. They built a nice sitting pad, but they want more. And they want Paul to design and build whatever “more” means. Here’s the catch – Paul has to keep their stone sitting pad and incorporate it into his design. No problem. He can do that. He can add a shed. And he can have a water feature competition with Jeff. No biggie.

THE AWNING DECK
After ten years of living with an empty backyard, Kenneth and Tutran realize it’s time to turn their backyard patch of grass into a family escape.

Paul comes up with a three-deck layout that includes a dining zone with a covered BBQ, a central lounge deck with curved cedar beams and a retractable awning, and a secondary lounge area to soak up the sun. There is plenty of room on this innovative deck for Kenneth and Tutran’s young family to grow into.
