This is a commissioned project that started late in the year 2010 and finished in January. In an effort to give an updated outdoor space for their new pool with out crowding an already small back yard space. I wish I could add more pics so you could see the old deck. It was elevated to the height of the old above ground pool which was higher than the new one. It towered over the 6 foot privacy fence making it useless for blocking the view of the patrons for the restaurant backing to their yard. This new deck has a pergola plus a gazebo and some open space for lounging in the sun. It also limits access to the pool by adding a platform with a gate.(Code for the area). I hope you enjoy the pictures. Thanks for browsing.

Classis and elegant look. That gateway gives a definite seperation of the pool and deck areas. Going to be stained or left clear?

Thanks for your comments. The owner will seal this in the spring but will keep the natural color.
