NZtimbo: So for the last year my main DIY project was "The deck"... First, clear and lower the ground somewhat to get a bit more clearance below the deck;
Then posts for the perimeter of the deck following the hedge line;
Gopher holes for piles to support the bearers;
Placing the bearers in their locations and pouring piles to support them;
Laying the decking timbres after the bearers were leveled;
Well kinda finished, still have to finish the garden (left over pile of dirt from gopher holes), some more lights along the perimeter.
Well done, looks great !!!!
