More custom decks
and porches
This customer had a simple
request -- "I would like a
roof over my deck so I can
lay on my hammock."
She had only a few requirements beyond that, "I would like you to leave the rafters
exposed, because I like the open feeling, and, if you can, match the shingles on the
roof as closely as possible.
"
Easy enough. Since completing her porch, she says she has spent more time on it in
the last several weeks than she did on her deck in the last few years. In a few
months, when finances permit,  she will have us return and screen in her porch.
