Ipe Deck with Outdoor Shower and Inset Stone

This deck makes a perfect outdoor grilling and lounging area. Equipped with a luxurious outdoor shower, it makes it easy to cool off in the summertime.

The rooftop garden features a series of low-voltage LED lights that run along the edge of the upper and lower decks creating a dramatic effect at night. The lights are inset into the ipe boards so that the surface is completely smooth.

All of the ipe was milled to precise widths to ensure that the removable decking sections would line up perfectly. Below is a view of the elevated train through beach grass. The custom planter boxes are painted to compliment the steel railing behind and are created at various heights to mirror the surrounding cityscape.


  1. Wow... absolutely spectacular! I'm in the planning stage of my own Ipe deck for this summer - and am so stoked to come across your blog.

    I'm looking for small flush lights and am having difficulty finding any up here in Toronto. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for sharing your photos!

    This woodworking book contains a great deal of details about wood working. The book also shows several designs and explanations on the materials useful for different woodworking processes and the directions on completing different processes properly. In other words, I`m happy using this book, specially in the procedure of understading about wood working.?
