Hi All, I am in the final stages of selection in my PPOR building process and given we are building a hamptons style home I am considering going a white(ish) deck. The deck is also only 2850mm wide with 1700mm high privacy screens due to council regulations so I am also quite keen to try and lighten the space to give it a larger sense of space. The deck is exposed to the elements. My current build quote is for a merbau deck but not sure this can be used. Obviously I will speak to my builder about this but thought I would get some feedback from my PC friends first. What would you recommend in terms of timber? Also any thoughts on this? Pros and Cons to this idea? I took a quick look on Houzz and thought maybe something like: My Houzz: Iris Dankner - Traditional - Deck - new york - by Rikki Snyder Thanks in advance!
