our latest decking design and builds

Its been a while since Ive posted pictures of our latest decking design and build projects, due to having been so busy.
So heres a selection of some of our latest jobs, mainly decks, balconies and stair cases around Wales.


A little bit different to our usual House or Caravan decks. This rustic deck was bit around a converted railway carriage high above the Dyfi valley. Its also available for short breaks, I'll add a link soon.


The previous staircase to this tree top deck had been built 'badly' and had started to rot due to non treated timber being used, we ripped it down and replaced it with this treated pine staircase and central platform. each step is 150 x 300 mm, creating a very easy to use staircase.

Wanting to create a useable area in a sloping garden we designed and built this 20 square meter decking in a garden at Aberdyfi. (I have to mention, we didnt do the fence!)

Wanting to incorporate some privacy panels, we stick to using our familiar post and rails railing methods but replace the balustrades with feather edge panels to add privacy. As can be seen on the side we raised the panels to 6 foot to add a total barrier. The solid panels also cuts down wind chill on windy days, ideal for coastal locations.

We don't mess about with our decking construction. We generally use 6x2", (150x50mm), joists at C24 grade for our beams and joists. Our frames are built using the post and beam method to evenly distribute weight across the footings.

The weather is starting to turn now, but we keep working all year round, designing and creating timber decks and balconies for our clients. Although people tend to think that spring and summer is the best time of year to get a deck added to their property, we're happy to work through Autumn and winter. Also if the decking means altering your garden in anyway, it allows time for your garden to recover before spring arrives.
