What is a Deck House home?

​The original Deck House company, of Acton, Massachusetts was founded by William Berkes in 1959. Construction of Deck House homes began in the early 1960’s in the southern New England area. Today Deck House homes can be found worldwide. 

Deck House homes feature post and beam construction allowing for a contemporary open floor plan with exposed beams, vaulted cedar ceilings and mahogany throughout. The unique high efficiency mahogany windows, customized sliding glass doors, and skylights maximize the amount of natural daylight throughout the house. Hand-crafted stairs, rails and other trim details are characteristic of a traditional Deck House home.
