Summer 2018 - Gilroy, CA
Having struggled with extreme sun exposure in summers past; this homeowner envisioned a creative two story addition intended to double outdoor entertainment areas while at the same time providing a completely waterproof footprint below for furniture and outdoor appliances.
Partnering strongly with engineers and architects, Decks by Decamp installed custom cedar glue laminate beams to accommodate for the large spans between columns. Custom truss' were flow in by crane and terracotta tiles installed to match the existing roof.
The second floor was then completely waterproofed using the Trex Rain Escapes deck drainage system. This network of hidden gutters and troughs will provide a moisture free patio area below, perfect for adding light fixtures, ceiling fans, entertainment systems, and more.
