Get Your Dream Deck

The owners of this house located on a riverbank in the Appalachian Mountains wanted to use only native, locally sourced materials. The balusters are fabricated from intersecting bark-covered laurel twigs. The posts are locust logs. The handrail is local cypress that's been stained, and the deck floorboards are indigenous pine that's been pressure-treated to resist rot. | Photo: Dan Forer / Beateworks / Corbis |
