Trex Benches, built 8/06
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm new here, but thought I'd practice posting some pictures here.

We built some steps off the back sliding door a few years back. I had a couple peices of Trex left over and decided to build a nice bench set. I ended up needing alot more Trex to get it done, but I think it was worth it. I get alot of compliments on this. I pretty much had a vision in my head of what it should look like and built it to match my vision.
The table tops are slate. This spring, I'm going to add nice plants to the planters behind the table tops.

Very nice. My deck is Trex and I know that those benches didnt come cheap! :no: I like them though. I might have to make something like that out of the piles of 2 foot pieces that I have left over.:laughing:

On the small tables, what is your frame(that you connected the trex to) comprised of?

Thanks for the compliments! For the frames, I had some pressure treated 2x6's left over that I ripped in half, so they were basically 1.5" x 2.25" at that point. It seemed to work really well. The tables are extremely heavy, due to the amount of Trex they consist of.

I was looking at the patio. Looks like concrete?

I was invisioning what that areas looked like empty (just the patio)and WOW...what a difference your work makes...nice job...alot cozier....

Thank you guys. It was just a concrete slab patio. Since we moved in, we put a hot tub down one end, these benches down the other and a nice patio set in the middle. I would love to build some type of enclosure over the hot tub one day.

Well, if your future enclosure looks as good as your work in the picture, my guess it that it will be "very" good! Nice job.

Thanks for the link, and very nice yard! We love those domes, but the price is a bit unreasonable. I bet the dealers would sell them cheaper, but none are real close to us. Very cool enclosures!

Thanks well they(the last owner) used the Garage to make a spa house. I dunno if you have a garage but its a thought. It may be cheaper to go that route.

looks like the whole back yard ard cover by deck materials without no grass no more.... wonder this will affect the water drainage, small animals under the deck...etc....

Yea theres no grass and the driveway is slanted so the water goes into the drains. By small animals under deck do you mean insects?
