Cedar Deck

01-30-2013 04:56 AM by Marty5965 | 5 comments »

Last spring I decided to replace the pressure-treated deck on the back of our house. It was only 7 years old but had not faired well in the Ohio weather. The rails had warped badly and the deck boards were cupping in too many places to warrant a selective repair. This picture is actually of the biggest spider web I have ever seen, but it is the only before picture I have. After the ubiquitous weeks of planning (and much discussion over copious cold ones) I recruited one of my riding bud...

Autumn leaves. Winterizing and covering the pool. #1: Autumn leaves when Autumn comes. Deck covering the pool

10-04-2010 07:12 AM by fernandoindia | 1 comment »

When summer is over, one expects the autumn leaves of red and gold start drifting all over the pool. Nice show to be seen on your´s neighbor pool. Sooner or later, it will happen in yours´, unless….... .... yes, unless you cover your pool. Since autumn started in Northern hemisphere, I imagine that someone may be interested in covering the pool, as I was last April. I made some research, namely surfing the web, and found the exercise of covering the pool can be done either t...

Over the next 2 or 3 months whenever i am not building birdhouses i will be designing and building a new deck and gazebo for my son Jamie,s back yard . The main framing of the deck will be done with P.T wood and then wrapped with cedar .

The overall size will be 36 ft wide x 52 ft long .I will post progress pictures as we go :-)

backyard deck #2: a few railings attached

06-05-2010 06:36 PM by dmoney | 3 comments »

I decided to wrap the 4×4 posts with 1×6s above the deck. It looks cool and makes the posts and railing super rigid. This gives it no room to move in any direction. I notched out for the railing and the horizontal spindles as you can probably see in the pics. Ran out of Titebond II so I quit for the day. Need to buy some to make some more railings.

backyard deck #1: floor done---working on railings

05-30-2010 10:01 PM by dmoney | 9 comments »

Building a deck for my backyard. It had one on when we bought the place but it was very old and wobbly so we ripped it down. Fast forward 2 years and now we are putting up a new one. Decided to go with green treated wood primarily due to the cost and easy availability. I also had been making adirondack chairs and found out all of the cool colors they make stain in now! the deck is 13’x12’ this was also my first attempt at making stairs, only ruined one extra 2×12 :)...

How to Make a Practical Deck Bench

08-07-2009 02:50 AM by EricWrights | 0 comments »

A deck bench seats two or more people so they can enjoy viewing from the deck. Good deck benches can be built practically without much expense. If we want to, we can build a deck bench ourselves. You have a nice deck with a great view, but what is missing? How about a nice deck bench to sit on and relax as you enjoy that great deck. This bench can be the perfect addition to your deck and believe it or not this is not the type of project you have to hire some expensive contractor for. No...

12 Small Deck Design Ideas

08-01-2009 09:53 AM by EricWrights | 2 comments »

A small deck does not necessarily have to remain a small deck. There are a number of techniques to make that less than large area increase in size and become more comfortable. The key to small deck design is simplicity. 1. Create the illusion of one big area from 2 smaller spaces. If your deck is bordered by the backyard lawn then allow this outdoor living area to spill out into that open space and it will create the illusion of being larger. 2. Create colorful flower or garden beds on ...
