Decking with a View

The purpose of this build was to create a living area where garden furniture could be installed, creating a space for outdoor eating, socialising and enjoying the view over the farmland.

The fence and decking were designed and built together. We have used willow and sweet chestnut on many structures in the past,  the darker woven willow really accentuates the golden colour of the sweet chestnut. The fence was designed in a way that fresh willow can be woven within each panel in the future without disturbing the sweet chestnut. The willow and sweet chestnut have been treated with a UV protective oil.

The structure is built with sweet chestnut posts, rails, spindles and plynth. The decking is pine, and the joists are stress graded pine.

This structure was a pleasure to design and build. There is no doubt that it will get a lot of use over the years!
