Portable Deck Built With Deck Tiles

portable deck

One of our customers is working and living on a remote job site in Texas. He setup his camper as a home away from home, however when we wanted to grill after work and relax after a hard days work he found the desert like ground less than appealing. He wanted an outdoor living area that was comfortable enough to walk on barefoot but portable like his camper. After searching online he found our deck tiles and thought they would be the perfect solution for his portable camper deck. He used 36 of our 24″ x 24″ Tigerwood deck tiles and used 6 x 6 stone pavers he purchased locally for a sturdy base.

He simply shimmed and scraped the ground as needed to make everything level then placed the deck tiles on top and snapped them together with about 36 DeckWise tile connectors. He said it was very simple to install and he wanted to share this picture with us because he was so thrilled with how it turned out. The tiles and connectors needed for the job were just over $900.

Typically, decorations extend beyond just a porch. They will usually wrap windows and sides of houses

The week after Thanksgiving was always a big deal growing up for me. It meant the trees came out of the box (yes, my family had artificial trees) and the lights went up outside. We decorated the front of the house, the walkway up to the front door, the bushes, and even the deck. The house was not complete until those red and green lights were wrapped around the deck railings.
