I had an informative conversation with Rob Gainer and Patti Tucker from DECKStraordinaire this morning. They build custom decks in Michigan. Since the winters there are long, and it’s difficult to build a deck when you can’t use a when the ground is frozen, they used their winter months to document their system and package it all together into a business opportunity. I’ll profile their bizop more fully later, but take a look at some of their decks. Even if you’re not interested in building decks for a living, you have to marvel at some of their custom designs.
