I love designing decks with fire! Fire elements bring a space to life year round. Its where everybody wants to gather. Its Mesmerizing. Its critical to design the fire to not only be pretty from every area of the deck but also to consider the view from the house. When your guests arrive and see your beautiful space right outside the back door a beautiful fire element will draw them out! Thoughtful design is what we are all about at Designing & Building from Princeton NJ to Greenwich Ct
If you've been following along then you probably noticed that Jamie and I purchased a house to flip a while back. Well, it needed a lot of help and while it was an okay size house, it did lack some extra entertaining area that we thought would be nice. After a little brainstorming we decided that an easy way to do that was to replace the windows in the dining room with a door wall that would lead onto a deck. In this post I detail the steps I took to build this deck. Come follow along.
