Colbourne Drive, Nanaimo, Spring 2015

This family had a tiny deck with a rickety old set of stairs that were in dire need of replacing. Through consultation with the homeowners and Greenplan Design, we were able to come up with a new timber post and beam roof line and upper deck that allows for year round enjoyment with a further covered area underneath for a hot tub. An open plan lower cedar deck with custom stairs running down to it brings a natural flow into their beautifully landscaped back yard. For a family that wanted to enjoy their outdoor living space year round, this design allows for the best of both worlds.

Sean Smith of Island Red Cedar Construction was attentive to every aspect of the planning and construction of our amazing deck addition. He and his staff were very knowledgeable, easy to work with and provided excellent service through every stage of the process. Sean takes the time to really listen to his clients, to obtain their ideas and input, to answer any questions or concerns and goes above and beyond to deliver a superior and custom-made building project. We are so pleased with the deck that Sean and his staff built for us; it is very well constructed and will provide an extended outdoor living space that we will enjoy for many years to come. It has greatly enhanced and added to the real estate value of our home. I would recommend Island Red Cedar Construction to anyone looking for a highly skilled and capable contractor for any home building project.
