Well I can finally say this deck is finished. I’m most proud of the stairs and the outboard grill idea. Most the deck was design in Sketchup which made it easy to visualize before the build. Without the sketchup the stairs would have been much more difficult. I laid out all my measurements on the two stair risers, routed the dados for the stair treads and put the risers in place. To my surprise, no mistakes! Perfect fit and treads were perfectly level. I’ll have to admit, it was a relief when it all worked perfect. Stiffeners were installed under the treads so i would not need a 3rd riser. I ended up putting a support under the stairs midway up the 14 foot riser but honestly it was amazingly solid.
