This Dream Deck…
This deck design has it all! A couple from Oakville asked us to design their dream deck for their retirement home on Lake Ontario. The existing deck was little more than a 400 square foot landing with stairs the whole width. We had other ideas.

Some of our deck designers favorite projects are in Oakville.
This deck design involved not just the deck, but also a small sun room at the end of the home. We placed a hot tub at the closest point to the lake with glass rails and privacy from the neighbors. The semi transparent privacy screen is nearly full privacy at the angle of view. It lets the good view in, while refracting the prying eyes. The cool custom pergola is the capital to the cake.
The privacy screen in the hot tub area stretches around the road side to the home .
The large staircase is again placed in the middle towards the lake and acts as an inviting carpet upwards. Decks that are only about 5 above grade are always awkward, and this is a good way to help it feel grounded. A cascade to the yard.
The curved portion of the deck also features curved laminated stairs. This whole deck is western red cedar which really is the greenest decking you can buy. Sustainably grown, lasting 20-30 years and easy to refinish.
We added lighting to the stairs and in other accent areas to bring the decks to life at night.
