North York Decks with Tempered Glass Rails
This deck was done in collaboration with Elizabeth Tschoppe Garden Design in North York, Ontario — As usual, she gave us a sketched concept and we put our details to the deck design. The trick was creating a beam beneath that would span 24′ for the double garage and still be high enough to drive the minivan under. A flashed plywood beam was the answer. Sure, this deck was built 15 years ago–but it certainly looked good with the house, and is still in use today.
The deck has a triple border and has full width red cedar decking. Spaced tempered glass rails to allow air to flow through and massive footings to support the posts carrying the 24′ beam.
The glass rails offer an unobstructed view of the kids playing in the pool below and emulate the windows within the house beyond. We always try to make the style of attached structures work with the home becoming a natural extension of the home– as if it grew there!
