CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"

  Conant Street Deck

With this project, the goal is to put in place a stairway which would finally allow the homeowners the ability to have access to the driveway from the existing upper deck. It will also provide another point of entry into the home. I will be extending the existing deck another 4' which will also lead to a stairway that ends at the driveway.

Dear Mike,


We wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful work you did on our deck. We also appreciate the open communication you had with us throughout the entire project. We're so pleased with the end result and have received several compliments already! And leaving us with a new "Welcome Mat" was so sweet. We really appreciate everything and please know that we'll be calling you for any future projects that might pop up. :)


Thanks again!
