Layout, framing, & installing Ipe decking.
These photos comprise the multiple steps of Ipe deck
design considerations while installing diagonal decking in a 'picture frame' configuration. The 'picture frame' configuration allows for NO cut ends to be visible, while highlighting the Ipe decking material. Each piece of Ipe must be hand drilled, counter sunk, and then fastened with stainless steel screws. Each board is hand stained and installed with uniform side spacing, and no butt joints throughout except at the outside corners. This required especially attentive measuring for the initial ordering and subsequent placement of these exquisite decking boards.
