Blending a New Deck with Mid-Century Architecture
Kelly approached us about improving the outdoor areas of her vintage 1959 Kirkland home. Currently a beautiful set of French doors in her master bedroom opened up to absolutely nothing. She wanted a private deck built where she and her husband could sip a glass of wine on warm summer nights or enjoy morning coffee on the weekends. In addition, Kelly’s front deck was rotting and not safe for entertaining, let alone for her children to play on. She wanted to replace the deck with a low-maintenance material that would complement her home’s mid-century architecture. Ideally, this space would be used for barbecuing, entertaining and allow access to their lower yard where they planned to put an herb garden.
Sales Manager Mark Jensen worked with Kelly to design her two new outdoor living spaces. The master bedroom deck was 10 ft-by-10 ft and constructed of dual-color hydrapressed slabs and a cable railing. The homeowners love this new extension to their master bedroom. The front deck carries the same elements of the master bedroom deck, a modern-style comprised of dual-color hydrapressed slabs and a powder-coated cable railing that sits atop a wood frame and geo-grid fabric. Each hydrapressed slab is pressed to give a dense, durable and non-slip surface; an excellent product for our northwest rainy climate. The geo-grid fabric provides additional support beyond the frame so that the 90 lb slabs are stable and secure.
Kelly’s family loves using their new spaces and are pleased with their decision to use McAdams Remodeling & Design as a design-build firm. They are ready for entertaining friends and family this summer!
