Deck patio ideas
Here is a covered deck that may give you some deck patio ideas for your own project. On the principal that a photo is worth a thousand words it is mostly photos.
A Recent high level Deck
This is a deck that I built a few of years ago, at the
age of 63 with a bad back, arthritis and just plain old age setting in.
It would have been so much easier with a nail gun eh? :-)
Thanks to Chris and Peter for letting me use these photos. ( Peter has an old Drew Carey video clip that he delights on passing on to anyone who remarks on the size of this deck).
The decking boards here are a hardwood timber called Selangan Batu, which originates in Indonesia, probably Borneo.
As you can see we make use of steel a huge amount. It is situated on top of a hill, overlooking the sea, so it had to be built as strong as possible. (Cyclone category 2.5)
We have a requirement in our building code that we don't have gaps greater than 125mm between any parts of the hand railing or balustrades.
We used a very popular method of filling the gap, Stainless steel wire strained between uprights.
Just to make a change we also used 12mm compressed cement sheets in a few places.
We cut the sheets with my small Makita wet saw.
All the steelwork was grit blasted class 2.5 and a coat of inorganic zinc
