My house is a project...Part II "Deck Evolution"


This project was actually more fun than anything. Pouring the concrete was the only stressful part due to heat and having to pay the truck by the minute while we wheelbarrowed loads of concrete to the back of the house! Had to have a little help with that!

-Designed my own plans (getting height right with hot tub was the hardest part)
-TREX Decking
-Hidden Fasteners
-Custom designed cedar railings designed by yours truely (holes made with hand drill!)

I've decided after uploading all these pics I am a DIY'er-aholic

Wow, that is a beautiful looking deck. Way to go!! I'm in the planning on building a deck at my place too. Not has eloborate as yours though. I like your spot lights in the night picture, those are a good idea that I'm going to incorporate into my plans. Again, good job!

Wow, you can really tell where you cut some corners .
Joking of course, very nice job. I love the look of multi-level decks. How long did it take you to design and build?

Tigerbalm....very nice. Did you do this one too - by yourself?

I am very impressed with your undertaking such a large project.

Bravo!

Yes, I did it by myself. My father helped with the 220 tub wiring and a little help pouring concrete with wheelbarrows but thats about it. Projects just keep on rolling along , money just keeps on disappearing . I never did quote it, but its approx 570 sq. ft.
