Fiberon Decking Announces Top Three Winning Outdoor Living Space Designs from FiberPRO Photo Contest

New London, North Carolina (PRWEB) May 29, 2014

Building an outdoor living space that suits the exact needs of an individual requires critical thinking and creativity. The deck builders who employ Fiberons FiberPRO services understand how to exceed their clients standards and build outdoor living space masterpieces.

Judged by social media users, the three winners are Buz Gardiner of Gardiner Construction, Inc., Robert Shaw of Colorado Deck and Framing, and Ivana Biela of Echelon Custom Homes.

These three winning photos represent quality craftsmanship. Using durable, elegant, and environmentally friendly materials, these home improvement specialists have created remarkable decking products that are equally beautiful and functional.

In this way, the winners not only create quality work, but they also fulfill the unique needs of their clients. The third-place winner, for example, consists of a two-story design that promotes recreation and rest with a deck that enables swimming in the pool and reading on the balcony.

According to Fiberons Director of Marketing Communications, Edie Kello, all three winners embody the best parts of life.

Our first-place winner, Buz Gardiner, designed a rounded deck that creates a special space, conducive to both social get-togethers and alone time. Simply look at the design, and you can see yourself doing anything you want out there, a dance floor or a place for solitude or meditation. Thats what Fiberon FiberPROs create for their clients.

With the voting responsibility placed in Facebook and Twitter users hands, fans of Fiberon cast their ballots for a variety of reasons. From design elements to the inclusion of recreational accessories, the comments centered on any number of elements.

With this free-for-all voting approach, Fiberons VP of marketing, Shellie Sellards discusses how the FiberPRO Photo Contest ended up being a close call.

Just a few votes separated the three winners. Only 27 Facebook Likes came between the first- and second-place winners. It could have gone either way, especially since voters particularly enjoyed the high output fire pit centered in Robert Shaws creation. Even though it took second-place, this outdoor living space easily could have won first-place.

With National Enjoy Your Deck Day not far off on June 7, this photo contest should give more than a few ideas on how to celebrate. To find out more about this contest and the upcoming deck day celebration, visit Fiberons website at http://www.fiberondecking.com.

He has taught at multiple universities, including Kent State, educating students on CAD software from the fundamentals of modeling to advanced modeling concepts.

Following an introduction to Revit and the stairs and railings tool palette, Dundr explains the basics of working with stairs, including stair rules, components, and properties, as well as the two primary methods of creating stairs, building by components or starting with a sketch.

The course also covers multi-story stairs and monolithic stairs, before moving on to annotation, covering symbolic representation, numbering, and tagging stair components.
