South Meadow, Black Butte Ranch - Outdoor Living Space

Redo the existing deck with maintenance-free TimberTech material, and extend the deck space to include a privacy wall, fire pit area, built-in hammock area, and a dedicated BBQ area.


Phase I: Demo day is always fun for our carpenters! Old decking, railing, and balusters were removed, and new underfloor post holes were dug. After demo was complete, we discovered some dry-rotted deck joists and a poorly executed connection of deck to house. Photos, description of the necessary changes, and the approximate cost were emailed to our out-of-town client. All repairs were done immediately upon approval. We are back on track with building the new deck areas.

Phase II: Materials were delivered, and the project took form. The TimberTech composite decking looks great as does the Deckorator ALX Classic baluster components, both maintenance free.

Phase III: As we round the bend towards completion, the weather has been warming up here in Central Oregon. The newly retired homeowners are eager to fire up their new fire pit and, if the sun shines just a tad bit warmer, swing in those hammocks even though it is only March.
