This beautiful backyard deck by Chris Wajciechowski utilizes the popular exotic Brazilian hardwood “ipe” supplied by East Teak Fine Hardwoods, Inc. Built by the owner himself, the deck measures 20′ x 17′ in the main area with an additional 12′ octagon-shaped, built-in seating area. The deck face utilizes 5/4″ x 6″ ipe boards, while the railings (including the stair rail and top rail) are made of 2″ x 4″ and 4″ x 4″ ipe boards. Black aluminum balusters by Dekorators and lighting by Malibu complete the look. The ipe deck was finished with TWP 116 Rustic sealer.
