Looks like you just became the favorite son-in-law! Or the first person they’ll call to fix anything else. Not sure if that is good or bad.

Indeed, it was nice to do but now all the wifes grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc… call for help with everything! It’s not bad though. It’s nice to be wanted/needed!

Very nice. I don’t know how much you paid in material but I have a general idea…......and in my opion your added property value at least doubled that of the cost. Well done.

Thanks Mike! I think materials were right around $2500. I value engineered like crazy. If it were a paying client I would have probably spent more time/money value engineering than I would have saved in materails. Oh well, luckily I don’t do it for a living right now so I don’t have to worry about losing money the longer it takes me to do something.

Nice Deck. I like the two-tier design. It makes it a lot more interesting.

Beautiful deck. I like the milti levels instead of one big level with a huge set of stairs.

Excellent deck. You do great work.

Great deck design. How is it re: the light for the downstairs now? I have a somewhat similar config, but I am afraid of cutting out too much light.

Thanks folks! mtkate – i actually can’t speak to what it did for the downstairs light. it’s an unfinished basement and all of the windows are covered up with junk from the inside. I would definitely say it darkened it a good bit but it’s west facing so at least they get the evening sun.
