I did this deck between September and March of last year. Yeah, it was cold! It’s not a fine woodworking project so I don’t know if it will fit in here. I did everything myself except for some help on the 100 bags of concrete. It’s a composite material from TimberTech. The deck has 23 footers, 6 beams, metal connectors on every joint…you could park you car on it. It’s 16×36 with a 12×12 octagon on a different level. Flaired stairs (PITA!!) Some day it will have a propane fire pit on it. Two-tone picture frame deck with tounge and groove decking. There’s a sandbox under it with my son’s name routed into it. Since these pictures there has been some landscaping as well.

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

:-) Looking at your projects prompted me to post my deck. I wasn’t sure what the etiquette is around here. I’ve only got about 1.2 acres, the land above me is horses/sheep/goats. I figured this is a good place to post stuff I’ve done that might get other people interested or asking questions.

Jason, this is a gorgeous deck. I like the octagonal addition that is on a different level. This adds a nice look to a decking project.

Fantastic job. Love the sandbox under the deck. Great use of space and shade. I can see why it took 6 months. I see also that it was well worth it.

Hey Jason
This is a great job I build a lot of decks and I don’t think I could do better.

Great Job… I have one question, what kind of hidden fasteners did you use. We only have a few in my area. On TV I’ve seen alot of different kinds that I like…

No hidden fasteners, it’s tongue and groove so there’s a screw in each groove that gets covered up. Also means half the amount of screws per board/joist. Search for TimberTech’s Floorizon boards.
