Decking & Detail Photos
(click photos to enlarge)

The 5/4" x 6" Ipe decking was installed using Deckmaster brand hidden fastener brackets. These brackets allow for an installation that provides a smooth unblemished decking surface. When using Ipe, this type of fastening system is highly recommended because of the expense and beauty of the wood. The decking boards are held in place with screws in pre-drilled holes from below. Plan on purchasing a lot of drill bits if using this method! I used approximately 20 titanium bits in the process of installing the decking alone. The screws fasten at an angle so the holes need to be drilled angled as well. This causes the drill bits to snap fairly easily. No matter how slow and difficult this process is, the end results are well worth it! See for yourself in the pictures below.
