After a few yrs working on the interior of the house, it was time to tackle the backyard. We are on a corner lot in the city, so space is limited. This deck is 10’ out from house, and 16’ long. The pergola posts are 6×6 and the big boards on top are 2×10. I got to use a Jack Hammer for the first time, so that was prettt cool. We ended up just using those precast concrete fooring blocks for foundation because the height was just right for one step fown from back door and one step down to the yard. We ended up putting privacy lattice on top for extra shade, as you can see in one of the pics. All screwed with those self tapping 3” star.bit screws, except for a few places we used the air gun. Brad gun for the lattice as well. The whole thing was about $1600 in materials, but I am sure it would have been more than 3 times that if we would have had it done.
Please critique at will, and feel free to suggest any extra stuff to add, it is a blank slate at this point.
