    From the left side of the deck

    After much planning, consideration, and convincing of Her Royal Highness, I built this. It's just over 1300 square feet, has 3 levels, a hot tub, 2 stairs with gates and a 10x14 trelis. Total cost was about 7k (which included a couple extra new tools - of course). I cannot imagine what a company...

    One of many Lizzards that have made the deck home. Whenever the weather is warm, they're out marking territory by puffing up thier red throats and munching on bugs.

    ERC Pool Deck WIP

    Well I think I got enough eastern red cedar cut and air dried this time to finish up the pool deck, no more excesses not to get it done. All that's left is to make up deck boards and beat em down on the far corner and around the edge. I did everything except cut the logs off the stump, buck em...

    Sorry, another deck question...

    What say ye is the best way to attach a ledger board to the cinderblock part of the house? The book I'm reading says to use 3 inch masonry anchors to hold lag bolts but this I believe is for solid concrete. Since the blocks are hollow is there a different method? For some reason I feel some...

    Another Deck Question...

    Well I've decided to take a stab at building a deck. I've decided to use traditional 'footers' (I think that is what they are called). The permit guy said that I needed holes 18" deep X 18" wide. I think I'll try to use those pier things so the wood posts are not in contact with the ground...

    Deck plans....

    After installing a 350 linear foot fence in my yard I'm feeling ambitious! I saved $3000 doing the fence myself and spent a day and a half installing it. (I almost fainted when I was quoted $4500 for a rustic split rail fence, but that's a whole other story.) Since the fence job went so well, I...

    Small Deck Table

    Building a Deck in Apex

    All right, it has finally happened... the wife is ready for an extended deck. As many of you know in Apex, the town is super-anal about codes, permits, inspections, etc.. I figure I will take advantage of the fee holiday and go on and sign up for a deck extension. I went to their website...

    Pool / Deck

    Deck builders fear me!

    Well.. maybe fear is a strong word, perhaps a little silent chuckle is more in order. Anyway, every since getting a workbench magazine last year with a deck redo project, my wife and I have been eyeing this project. Here is a link with the inspiration for this project. We started with this...

    Yet another deck fastener idea.....

    Ok, so, for no reason, I got an idea. If you were to do what I call "blind wedged dowels", could you eliminate the need for visible fasteners in a deck? Bore a sloppy hole in the underside of the deck boards. Bore a similiarly sloppy hole in the top edge of the joists. Cut a kerf in...
