It all started with my wife and i drinking coffee on are old deck.
We invisioned a french door leading onto a small deck off are third floor from are bedroom.
Well that made a chain reaction.
Had to rebuild the old deck with knew hand rails and decking and steps.
Which led to a much larger than planned upper deck for us to walk out on through are knew french Doors.
All done with my ryobi tools
This deck would not be approved by a building inspector as the point loads from the upper deck are not directly transferred to the foundation and this will cause the lower deck to sag.
