I built this for a friend whose old deck was rotting away. The replacement is the exact shape, just a different layout. The previous owner, who built the deck, poured concrete right up to the old deck, so the new one had to fit the concrete form exactly. She had me put hidden trap doors into the sides to access irrigation and pool stuff. Also, there’s ropelight under each step for safety, and a cool spaceship look at night. The Trex color is Winchester Gray. I’m not very pleased with the Trex. It gets really hot in the sun, and scratches easily with patio furniture feet. Also, I had to vacuum up all my sawdust during the entire building process, which ended up being several cubic feet.
