I built this 2 level deck at home last spring. Decking, rails, and walls are cypress, stained & sealed with Sikkens SRD.

That is truly a gorgeous deck. How many SQ feet are we talking? I have seen some huge decks but yours is truly clean and beautiful.
Great Job

Beautiful deck and setting…..very inviting and comfortable. Just wondering about building codes in your area. We couldn’t get away with an open railing like yours. Their are height requirements and a minimum spacing requirement between spindles….4 inches….to keep the kids from falling through. I am envious of the open feeling you have achieved.

jbschutz-

The deck was designed to follow the ground so that the distance from the finished deck to the ground is less than the requirement for a handrail/guardrail, so I decided to use an open timber rail.
