Vermont cozy deck


We just built this deck. The firepit is built in. What a great place to watch the sunset.

Anyone else see some issues with a deck built like that?

No railing or a surround around the fire pit to catch any ambers…

Wouldn't water tend to flow towards the house with
it stepping down towards it. :Shrugs:

Looks good!

Good idea Creeper.
I already have a few in the in the picture area that were posted long ago.
I'll see if I can find the disk there on and repost.

Riser height.
Looks like 2X's in contact with the grade. 2x's are not direct contact rated.
Decks so low there's not going to be any air flow to dry out the bottom side.
Decks installed to close to the siding.
Decks even with the threshold so water may get in under it.
Sidings closer then 6" to the deck so splash back is going to cause staining and premature rot.
