Lots of Design Ideas & Options


I love helping my clients find the right design to fit their needs. In addition to my design guides, I like to create sketches of design options and innovative ideas.

So here are a few sketches which illustrate some design options to give you an idea of how to customize you new fence, deck, arbor or treehouse.


Fence Designs
Option A

This redwood fence with cedar fence boards features an open top area that can be filled with a variety of finish details, such as lattice or vertical slats (see Design Option B).


Fence Designs
Option B



Decorative Deck Board Patterns

You can add visual interest with a variety of deck board layouts. Here are just a few common patterns.



Terrain Following Fences

Here are two ways to build a fence on a slope.




Decorative Finials

You can add a decorative post cap or finial to the top of posts for a custom touch.





End Beam / Rafter Cuts

A nice way to add visual interest is to cut the end of each rafter in an interesting shape (also know as a corbel).
