Backyard Ipe Deck

This deck was built in the Art Museum area of Philly. The deck and privacy walls are made using Ipe, a very dense Brazilian walnut. Ipe has the same fire rating as concrete and steel, and is so dense it does not float in water. It is time consuming to work with because all holes need to be predrilled for screws, but the results are beautiful and extremely durable.
