At this lake cottage, this is an AC2 treated structure with UltraDeck composite deck boards.  The customer requested no railing due to the fact that the deck is only about 20″ from the ground.  The skirting is made from the leftover boards.

UltraDeck is usually triple the cost of treated pine deck boards ($1.49/ft vs. $.49/ft); however, you can spend more time enjoying your deck rather than maintaining it.  It has a natural wood grain texture and is 90% recycled/reclaimed materials!
