remodeler Freemont - Custom Deck Builder Seattle

deck build & siding


The owner of this Fremont home wanted to replace the existing siding and create an inspired and beautiful deck area. The architect called for the use of cedar and Ipea to create the trellises and railing systems, using galvanized spacers between the Ipea rails. The result is a light and bright deck area with rich wood texture. Completed 2005. Custom Deck Builder Seattle, Seattle deck build
