Here's three renderings for a deck I'm doing right now. What's your opinions as to where the seam boards should go? The side yard decks are ok it's the dark colored seam boards that we're debating. (The back of the home) thanks in advance.

I like 3 to get seams away from windows/ doors...imop
I was waiting for someone to say that. This is what the owner is concerned about as well. I didn't say that in the original post to keep from contaminating the suggestions.

But it can now be a part of the discussion.

The only thing with three is it leaves a small area to right. My concern is it might look awkward proportionally.

Well, Redwood came up with the idea to add another Seam board to the left side corner on number 3 if we a absolutely had to go with number 3 but he actually chose number 1. The Home Owner is not cool with the seam in the middle of the door ways.

Andy, the seam boards get rid of joints. It's a big deal when a gun clip only fits on one joist. So if there's a butt joint this way your not adding a scab at every random joint.

middle more detail on those rear dimensions would help
Bone, that is the one I like as well. I think that is the one I will recommend. :thumbsup: All the boards will be the same color, so the seams aren't going to be as conspicuous.

Oh crap! Now I see the blue strips. Looks like the little bubble is pointing to the red ones. Andy.
Don't feel bad. I looked at it five times before I noticed the blue lines

My vote is number 2. I like symmetry.

I like number 3 the best out of the choices but I think I would move the left seam board over one post to the left. It gives it a better center between the door openings.
So your thinking move it to the left to the other part of the 45? ( Left as your facing the home correct? )
