  • Gazebo , Deck and Pool

    Hi everyone ! At the beginning of the summer my son came to me and asked me if i would give him a hand designing and building a deck and gazebo around his 24 ft deck .
    How can you say no to your kids

    The main framing was done with P.T wood and everything else is cedar .
    The railings are done with 3/4" metal spindles . There will be solar lighting on all of the 4x4 post .

    This is a before picture .



    Here is how it looks now !

                nicely done!. that must have been a great deal of fun to put together. i like the vertical skirt boards that block views of the deck undersides. do they go to the ground and contact the soil?

                  That is really a nice job. The only concern I can see is if you ever have to replace the liner. I had a deck around half of my pool and it made it almost impossible to change the liner.

                    My son used a edger first and dug down 6"
                    Then we poured a 12" wide strip of gravel around the base of the deck and kept the boards up a bit .

                    The entire deck is screwed down , to replace the liner all you have to do is unscrew the first row of decking . We haven,t put that row on yet because my son is already thinking about putting a new liner in next spring .

                    Thanks everyone !!

                          It actually didn,t feel like it took very long . We started it at the beginning of the summer but we only worked on it a day and there and next thing it,s almost done . It,s a good thing because i,m not making a penny on this one .
