My deck, a diy four month adventure


You have such nice Pergola's I was wondering about weather protection, I see that you cut slits for Plexiglass. Over here we would put the plexi on top of all the wood. Much less maintainence on the wood. Cover all of it. Your doing great work don't take me wrong. I just look to the future and work & costs to keep it going. Dorf Dude...

It looks great and it's a cool design.

When it's all done, are we all invited over for a burger? LOL

It's actually 26x26 granite tiles, we notched them around the post.

I just got finished building and painting baluster-type rails to surround the pool and enclose the patio. Pergolas are next, and I'm still trying to relocate the grill to somewhere other than its current spot that is perfect distance from the inside kitchen.

Great job on that tile!!!

I threw in some yard work in the middle of all this:



2ft x 2ft paver walkway to the sun deck, no fun with those back breakers








Got the last bit of the step finished


Almost done...

I'm curious as to sod over pit-run gravel, will that root? Looks like your almost there. Be safe, G
