My intention was to create a deck in close harmony to the house facade and to remodel the grand room created by removing the separation wall between two adjacent rooms. my design policy was to maximize advantages for client by my design and to minimize the cost of deck construction and of room remodelling.
the access to grand room will remain at its same location as before. However, a pocket door for adjacent bathroom will be provided from grand room in order to facilitate the movements. Other than this there is no need of any change in the bathroom.
The design of deck shelter will have close resemblance to the roof of the house, and owing to the aesthetic reasons deck floor and deck shelter framework will be constructed from redwood. Owing to structural reasons, the lower part of deck columns will be of concrete and the upper part of those columns will be constructed of steel.
