Product Description

This cedar deck was built in Guelph Ontario and was built using a grade beam. Rocky soil and the fact that they excavate all the yards down 8′ plays havoc with footings. This was pre-helical footings days, so we came up with a floating footing for decks in just such an area where the soil is expected to settle for the next 30 years or so. Floating footings are those that rise up and down with the frost, and in theory, they should settle to much the same level as they were previously

It was built to house a hot tub in the future, so once they cut out the area for the tub, the support slab is in place, and the framing has been done for easy removal the size of the tub.

A simple pergola gives vertical interest to this very cool deck design.
