This is a deck my son and I built last year. This was how he earned money for his first car.

Same here. The car may last longer now that he knows he had to PAY! Yeh right.

Very nice addition to your home. And paying for the car and it lasting longer…lol My first car was paid for by me and wrecked by me as well. Lesson learned after the um, customization/wreck of the car.
Thanks for the post.

Can’t put a price tag on the lessons learned on a project like this. How to build a deck, how to work with a client, how to make money, etc. Plus family time. Bonus.

Beautiful!!! I love the open look if I were to build a deck it would be very similar.
