This is a 2×4 cedar deck that I built this summer in a corner of the yard that got very little use. The project got off to a difficult start when I went to do a partial demolition of the porch and found that the wooden posts under the stucco had completely rotted away. The deck is partially covered with a pergola-type structure with plastic corrugated roofing on top. I really enjoyed making the mortise and tenon joints between the 6×6 cedar posts and the 6×8 cedar beams. These joints are locked together with 1” oak dowels. The deck is finished with Defy Cedartone Stain.
