Hi everyone . Here are a few pics of my 12×16 cedar deck that i added to the end of my shop . I use the upstairs of my shop for lumber storage so it is much easier to get the material up and down now .
I use the space below to store lumber also .
I get a great view of all the bird houses and the birds now :-)

Looks like a great place to relax while you are waiting for the glue/paint to dry, or to just watch the birds.
I like your supply of extra poles for your birdhouses, just in case you need one in a hurry. Thank you for
sharing.

oh yea i wanted to ask you john…do you leave the wood raw on your bird houses, as they look to be turning the natural gray that comes with outside exposure and time..they look good…ive got a nice cedar log that needs to go into the ground and then im still going to do an extreme bird house myself…it would always remind me of you and what you do..i hope your doing well with it all and getting some good exposure and business is booming i hope…grizz

Good looking deck you did John. I really like the way you changed up the pickets on the hand rail. Are you going to treat the deck with BLO? That also is a good location for your new birdhouse, Gues you can see them in the pool now.

Tough and rewarding job John.

That is a wonderful deck, besides a wonderful shop in what I´d say a wonderful and beautiful place.

I´m sure you´ll enjoy your Spring and summertime there

I do also have to do a rail around mine. But I think I am a bit tired for now.

Deck on birdhouses , LOL Lee

Thanks for posting
