Ipe Deck and Screened Porch in Wakefield, RI

This was a great project where the customers wanted to improve the back of their home and property incorporating landscaping and hardscaping with the new ipe deck construction. The existing ipe porch was small and the owners wanted a space that would allow them to cook and entertain outside as well as relax in a bug free environment.  They also wanted an outdoor shower with hot and cold water as well as a changing area near the garage to keep sand from beach trips out of the house.

The deck railings were built to match the railings on the front of the house using meranti, a durable, rot-resistant hardwood.  The decking is solid ipe with an oil coating and a hidden fastener system.  The shower is completely constructed from solid cedar with beaded glass windows for privacy.
