ENDelt's deck thread

One of my favorite things about my condo is my big deck. Unfortunately, my deck's kinda ****ed up. I knew it was ****ed up when I bought the joint, but I've never gotten around to doing anything about it. I'm finally taking care of that now. Over the next couple weeks I'm getting bids on getting work done on it. I figured I should put my digital camera to good use and document the transformation.

An added benefit of sharing the pics here is some of you fellers that like to build stuff and know all about that might pipe up from time to time and say, "Hey, you should do this." Or, "Holy smokes, you dipshit. I can't believe you did that."

I find the deck kinda hard to explain to folks who have never seen it. Hopefully these pics make it easier to understand what my situation is. If I can provide a better picture or description of something, let me know.

Phil took some pics while I was at work today. I guess today he tore up the roofing layer to replace the damaged stuff underneath (joists and, uh... other things. I think made of wood. They keep me in the air).

Anyway, he took some damage pics because by the time I got home, the new roofing was on.

This is the deck as it looked when I got home from work today. When I took this picture, there were a couple of... uh, "bargain" workers rebuilding my stairs and repairing the drywall in my closet. When they're done, I'll post some shots of that.

Hey Phil, what are you going to do for joists under the decking? I assume you're just going to do what they did before and lay down floating 2xs.

You might want to cut some extra strips from the 90# to use as pads under them, so they aren't sitting directly on the roofing material. That way any wear from friction should occur on the strips. If you have enough room, you might even buy a sheet of 1/2" fiber board an cut strips out of that.

I thought of that after I talked to you the other day. Hope I'm not too late with the suggestion.

Phobia, where are you going to buy wood? I'm contemplating a very simple 8x8 deck, and I've priced 2"x6"x8' pressure-treated pine at Home Depot at $6.69 each.

Is that expensive?

Take pictures of them when they're working. They like that.

Nah. That's about right. Believe it or not, I get most of my lumber at Lowes and Home Depot. The local lumber yards and deck suppliers aren't any cheaper and there's a Lowes/Depot within a couple miles of all my jobs.

Excellent. Thank you. I'm tempted to buy the redwood but it's around $9.50 a board. The Douglas Fir is $4.50. Ever use Douglas Fir?

A few new pics today.

These will eventually be erected outside... but, I saw 'em in my living room when I got home and felt like taking a pic.
