After scraping the old deck and having to stain it every year, It was time to enlarge and update the old one. After getting quotes to have it designed and built I knew we couldn't afford it, So with my Ryobi tools in the up and out of the basement I got started. working on it part time it took about two summers by myself. Buying the best materials I could get. PT framing lumber-composite deck and rails, low voltage lights-custom built enclosure on sides of deck, cable tv outlet; power outlets,10x12 gazebo on deck all built with Ryobi 18v tools.
