Pressure treated deck. The weather and the view from this customer’s house was almost payment enough… almost.

Wow, that had’ve been hell on your saw blades!
That is one massive structure you constructed, and well done at that!
Did you leave any access/removable panels to be able to get under the deck, if the need arises?
Just how much lumber is that, anyway?

That is not a deck it looks more like a boardwalk. Very good.

You could land a plane on that clay! Just out of interest, how long did it take you from start to finish?

Hey, guys. Thanks for the good words. Yep, burned up several saw blades and good Porter Cable cordless drill. In the last photo you can see a temp lattice panel (put up to keep the owner’s dogs out) that was replaced latter with an access door. It took several deliveries from the lumberyard to bring it. Took me and one helper 3 weeks. I hired a couple of laborers for 2 days to assist with demo of the old deck.~Best

Hat is one big piece of woodworking. Very nice and I am sure the loss of the drill came at the most opportune time. Steps look great also
