A before and after (below) of the rear of the home from the same perspective. The new Hardie Plank siding us just about the same color as the house paint. But I guess we’ll paint it anyway. Notice the exact mirroring of the architectural detail of the soffits and fascia work on the new addition vs. the existing home.
The new deck is smaller than the old one but will be just right for a grill and chair or two chairs and an end table. I’m not sure if Sally will stain the new deck, I think that if she wants it stained, I’ll suggest just using a natural protective sealant and not a color.
Chris, Mark and Isaac take a lot of pride in the detail that they craft into each and every project. Here is a classic example of the nice touches they add, not required but a nice flair. Notice the fillet that graces the inside of the railing corner and chamfered tops and bottoms of the posts. The very blond color is the normal color of the new Pressure Treated Southern Yellow Pine. For all the visible areas (deck top, railings, and stairs) we used KDAT material (Kiln Dried After Treatment). This type of lumber has a better finish and since it is a specialty lumber it is of very good quality.
