Decided to build a deck on the back our our house, needed some outside space out of the sand and stickers. Its 38'x16', minus the little jog going around the corner of the garage. Due to termites being prolific in our area its is set on pipe cemented in the ground and joists bolted to an piece of angle iron welded on top. All pressure treated lumber, 2x8 joists and 2x6 decking. Was a fun project and with some much appreciated help from some family we got it done pretty quick and good thing, will have my boys birthday party at the house this coming weekend and get to enjoy it. Still need to pop a line on the end of the boards and cut them all to exact length but last night at 9pm I decided that could wait till daylight.

Leaving Lowes wondering if I bit off more than the trailer could chew

More may always be better, but we have some plans for a shop build going that direction in the future. Some un planned for moving around of employment that is still up in the air is putting that off for a bit though. Its already bigger than I thought it was going to be lol

That’s a great looking deck and it compliments the back of the house nicely. Great job up

LoL, just like with sausage making, there were plenty of "deck" jokes and one liners thrown around.

Good work!

What are you going to stain or paint it with?

You’ll be building a pergola over it soon.

Not sure on stain. Everything I read said it needs to dry out for about 4 weeks before staining it’s been raining on it a lot so not much drying lol

No roof or pergola. Unlike my last house this one come early afternoon is shaded by the house, deck is on the north east side.
