Colonial Restoration – Deck Design in Caledon Ontario
These decks were added around a sun-room / solarium addition to enable easy access to move plants in and out of the solarium. The rails had to match the custom turning profile on the existing front porch. We had them turned locally out of white pine materials. All the materials were pre-finished with a high quality solid stain. This is just one of the 5 projects installed recently at this residence.
Oversized posts and laminated caps give the posts a near flawless look. These decks were well overbuilt for durability.The ramp on this deck is not for wheelchairs. The homeowner is an avid gardener and it is to facilitate moving plants onto the deck and off spring and fall. The deck rail balusters were custom turned at a local shop– at 2″ square they are a little larger than most and give a more substantial appearance.
At the time of shooting the pergola was not quite done– check out the pergolas gallery for those photos. Decks are all about what surrounds them. If you have a lot happening in the landscape, simple deck details can work very nicely. In Barbara’s garden there are thousands of species of plants, statuary and large trees everywhere– having an outrageously detailed deck just would not have worked. It had to be simple.
