This custom deck and pergola combination create a versatile outdoor living area for the home owners. The pergola provides partial shade on the deck, so the home owners can enjoy some relief from the sun on brighter days. The deck has two different areas designated for different activities with the pergola; one are could be for dining or seating, with a separate area for grilling. The lattice board skirting feature serves a double purpose by creating an area for storage as well as protection from animals getting under the deck. This wood deck and pergola were custom designed and built by Winnetka, Il deck builder, Archadeck of Chicagoland.
