Tiered deck

This deck started off simple enough and, quite honestly, never really got complicated, Just time consuming.

It was supposed to just be an L-shaped deck with 2 24” deep platform steps. This was done so they wouldn’t have to install railing. We got the skeleton up and realized that the ground at the end of the lowest platform was significantly lower than we had originally thought. My math was just a bit off, apparently.

We saw this as an opportunity to add another platform to “finish” the look of the deck. To this point, it seemed the deck looked unfinished, but when sitting back and rethinking, we decided that a platform at the bottom would do what we wanted, and it did.

In the spring, we are considering adding a platform from the left of the deck to the walkway to their door. It is an afterthought, but seems to connect the two.

Thank you. I am hoping they will go for the last tier, it would really be a cool looking deck with that.

The deck for the most part looks good, can I suggest you add a litlle character to it, such as: some planter boxes ( that would sure give it a little color ), or even a few benches, or even lights in the stair risers, just little simple things can change so much.

Dennis, You are very correct, that some little things would have made a nicer look. I would have done a few, had the homeowner not wanted to be the one to do them.

He is putting some planters on the driveway side this spring, but he isn’t sure if he is going to do it or have me do it.

Also, we will probably be adding to the opposite side, so this project is only finished to a point.

Nice looking deck, and if I may say I don’t think it would have looked half as nice without the platform at the bottom. What’s the section at the top with the railing? Is that for a barbecue or something?

The deck looks very good! Well, that’s the nice thing about building something yourself, if you’re not happy with it you can just adjust or change it a little bit. What kind of wood material did you use for this project?

The material is just treated lumber, but the railing area has metal rails. The railed part is the seating area, the rest is just deck area.

The end result looks WOW! I’m not one who’s into much carpentry works but I think you’ve just inspired me.
