We built these concrete patio pavers with cedar accent decks for the shipping container house I am building out in Joshua tree CA. if you want to see the shipping container house series click here:

The sun out here in the California desert is quite harsh and I wanted materials that could withstand the constant UV abuse. Concrete pavers are ideal, but I liked the idea of adding some wood accent decks to break it up visually and create outdoor spaces that are flush to the interior floors. Western Red Cedar was the ideal choice since it can stand up to the sun without cracking and will weather to a nice silver grey that will match the paint on the house. I like the paver and gravel combination because it’s a forgiving design for beginner level builders. Unlike a solid concrete patio these pavers don’t have to have a slope that will funnel rain in a particular direction.

Key Products:
