These are not great images, (shot with my iphone at dusk), but they do show progress of the new deck! The pool/deck area used to have a covered part that was done in ipe wood, which we loved and kept. We wanted to continue the ipe out to surround the entire pool and create a walkway on both sides out to the far deck. Previously there was no walkway, making it very awkward to get out to the far deck. You can see the work in progress in these images, the face/front piece of trim has yet to be put on, but all the boards have been laid! We are also installing an outdoor shower with both hot and cold water that sits in a little grove of palms. Ipè is a hard wood that feels so lovely on the feet and holds up incredibly well in tropical climates. It has a very clean, simple look to it and turns a beautiful shade of grey in about six months time.
