CG & S Design-Build, Austin, Texas
These clients wanted to transform their languishing deck it into an outdoor paradise. Debris used to constantly coat the uncovered deck, making it inconvenient to use. To make the space more inviting, they wanted to add a roof cover and create an outdoor entertainment center. Proximity to trees and neighbors, as well as structural concerns, meant that thoughtful design and construction were required to successfully transform their deck into an arboreal entertainment area. Cedar, ipe, redwood and glulam beam tie the covered area in with the home. The custom media center holds a TV, built-in storage, and bar space, while an ornamental appliance works as a fireplace. The result resembles a treehouse, ready for all types of entertaining.
