  • 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 !

      Very nice John, and good to hear from you, its been a while.
      Now I know what has been keeping you busy.
      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

                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?
                there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

                  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 !!

                      Very nice job! Is that trolley for sending beer down to the pool?

                          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 .
