Exterior Remodeling in Oakton, VA
Large specimen trees surround this covered Ipe deck that looks out onto a flagstone walkway in a yard full of perennials. Extensive custom landscaping was a principal element of the exterior remodeling project at this Oakton home.
A wide flagstone walkway leads from the backyard to the front of the house, with occasional curved seating walls along the way. Short hedges and simple planting beds were planted close to the house, while tall shade trees were placed at the back of the property and in front of two windows at the front for privacy. Lush green grass covers the backyard, providing a lovely view for guests enjoying the expansive backyard deck.
We installed wide Ipe planks in a chevron pattern to add some visual interest to the space. Ipe is a stellar deck material. Three times harder than cedar, it’s one of the most flame-resistant woods on the market. Sturdy, square, paneled columns emerge from the traditional white railing around the deck to support the impressive tongue-and-groove ceiling.
Lighting and Ceiling Fans
Built-in can lights and a series of ceiling fans were installed to make the deck a hospitable locale both day and night. Square, paneled beams mimic the columns and add support to the deck roof.
Full Outdoor Kitchen
A full outdoor kitchen sits at the left side of the deck, next to the main seating area. A stainless steel grill is accompanied by a matching warming drawer and covered by a full-size range hood that keeps the deck from getting smoky or overheated when the grill is being used. We installed a granite countertop to make the kitchen even more functional and attractive.
