Well my wife and I finally decided to buy our first home this month even though we think we havent seen the bottom. We found a nice place in Discovery Bay right on the water and the wife has wasted no time planning for a built in BBQ, fire pit and new deck. She has an idea of what she wants but I wanted to run it by so people who have been there and done that for suggestions.
The deck is currently built out of douglas and has some dry rot so its coming down. THat and its not water proof and we want this area to be dry in case of rain. THe hope is to build a L shaped bbq area and be able to add the fire pit and deck later on.
Here's what we have to work with
