My husband built a new deck, and I thought I would share some of the pictures.........he did an amazing job. It took a lot of hard work.
Beautiful! Great job. Jim
How inviting! Your hard work paid off beautifuly.
Wow, that's beautiful! Looks very inviting...
Wow, your DH did a fantastic job. One you can both be proud of and one you will enjoy for many years to come.
Simply gorgeous!! He did an excellent job!
Beautiful job does he do others? He looks good enough to contract out his work.
Nice work. Thanks for sharing.
Actually, he has built one other deck before this.....at his sisters trailer.........the other one used pressure treated wood...........so no staining involved.......this one took a lot of work for the foundation and the staining..........once the boards were laid down, it all seemed to come together......thanks for all the great compliments!
I just wanna know do you rent out that husband of yours??..or..I am up for adoption as a sister!!!
That is beautiful!!!
Hi sunshine, WOW what a deck! You have to share what stain / finish was used. I just love the colour and nice sheen too!
What kind of wood and stain did he use? It is just gorgeous. We are looking for deck ideas and yours is beautiful. Liz
We used a deck finish called "Sikkens Cetol Deck Finish" . It's a product from the Benjamin Moore paint store. Expensive........took 3 gallons at almost $ 100.00 / gallon. The wood is cedar.......not the treated wood.......stained all sides of the boards, and two coats on the tops of the boards..........this was all done before they were put down........Lizinnh I have more pics if you would like to email me.......I can send them to you........I have a picture I especially like, but didn't manage to get it on here.........it shows the corner of the deck with the wrap-around stairs. email email@example.com
sunshine, I noticed the gutter/downspouts. Even though it appears there is no roof, there must be something clear up there. What did you use? Fiberglass sheets, perhaps? Do you find it warms up the seating area, or does the air flow prevent that?
We recently took down a deck and are building a patio, and I'd love a pergola. Yours looks terrific.
We used the clear corrugated hard plastic roofing sheets......we decided on the clear because we wanted as much light as possible in our family room, and not to appear dark............we face north south, which gets morning and after 4pm. sun.........it does take a little more upkeep to keep clean.........usually once per year cleaning.
