A Plan Comes Together
As the main level of the home design began to come together, the deck shape varied along with each of the progressive versions of the plan. When it was decided to add a corner window in the Living Room that directed its view towards the pond, the deck naturally began to take a shape by reflecting the expansion of this corner outward.
Now that we had a shape, we had to break the news to our structural engineer, Ken Theisen of Engineering Tech, PA. Our interesting conversation went something like this. “Hi Ken, how’d you like to do a deck with no columns?” A long period of silence followed my question and then a response of “sure, send me something so I can start thinking about it.”
Stay tuned to see the model image sent to Ken and just how his office came up with a solution that meets all of our design expectations and more!
