OK, so maybe not completely done, but done enough…

Those two posts you see sticking up will be topped with another 6×6 beam, and will support a half-roof to add some “porch” to the deck.

Main part is 10×10, second platform at 6×10, there are a total of 21 steps! All PT lumber.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great! Your family is going to get a lot of enjoyment as a result of your hard work.
That’s a lot of steps! If you weren’t a pro at building steps before, you are now. :)

You will thank yourself in years to come for putting the posts on pylons as opposed to burying. Good job and enjoy!!

Very nice deck. I like it leads to the kids play structure below. You also got some great trees.

WOAH! quite a bit of a change from the original stone steps…. NICE!

totally changed the tone of the yard, very cool. we definitely need to come and ‘test’ it out :)

how was working with PT lumber though? I keep hearing bad things about that stuff

Nice deck.

Question; what at the base of the play gym. Is that river stone? Also do you and the kids like it. I am getting a play structure this year and I am not sure what to put down.

Great looking work. I like the way it works with the change in grade and the multiple paths on and off the deck. BTKS
