Well, I am not “100%” done yet but I couldn’t resist posting any longer. I still have skirting to put around base (which will be made of vertical deck scraps), a few areas of touch up painting, grass to restore, etc. But who knows how long that will take me just working evening and weekends.. With the retaining wall this has pretty much been a summer long project.
This deck is made of “Cedar Tone” treated lumber. It was a trade off for actual cedar lumber which is pretty hard to get a hold of in the treeless North Central Kansas area for a fair price. Regardless I am pretty happy with the look. My wife (and I) really liked the partially painted look when we were planning this thing. I think mostly because it will make staining/sealing, painting and all other future maintenance real easy. NOT.
Also if anyone has any recommended stain or deck staining advice, I’m all ears.
