One of my favorite things about my condo is my big deck. Unfortunately, my deck's kinda f*cked up. I knew it was f*cked 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.

The stairs leading up to my place. They'll be getting replaced as part of this project as well. Unfortunately, due to the HOA, the new stairs will have to be painted that color.

A shot of the planters that surround the deck. The genius that designed this lined 'em w/ sheet metal. Apparently he was unfamiliar with the concept of oxidation. This has led to damage of unknown extent at this point. I do know about a hole in the ceiling of the storage closet down below.

A piece of shit cabinet. I think while they're tearing shit up anyway, I'm gonna have them tear this f*cker out. It's ugly as sin, and it's not even watertight. I'm considering replacing it with one of those Rubbermaid storage closet things.

I can't say I can really think of any off the top of my head.

There's not really a lot of good spots out there. That table's usually filthy. The walls aren't smooth, I'd imagine they'd be quite uncomfortable to lean against. Even if the boards were new and perfect, they'd still be hard and uncomfortable. As it is, they're in quite the state of disrepair. No one would consider laying down on them.

A bit of whine? You must be applying someone else's tone of voice to my words. C'mon, man. I love beer.

I usually don't mix as many in a night as I have been, though. I'm more of a drink one beer all night kind of guy. But, on Monday, IIRC, I started w/ Sam Adams Summer Ale, then had Sam Adams Double Bock, then Nimbus Old Monkeyshine, and finally Alaskan Amber. Last night I started w/ the Summer Ale again.. at some point had an Alaskan, then went back to Summer Ale. Some Maudite and Hidden River Black & Tan got tossed in there. Then more Summer Ale & Alaskan. I must've finished off the Summer Ale and Alaskan, because I ended the night with Bass.

I don't even know what all is still in the fridge. I know there's a twelver of Bass and a twelver of Sam Adams. There's still some Hidden River Black & Tan. There's a bottle of something I don't remember the name of that Phil picked up at the liquor store on Monday. There may still be some other stuff.

My fridge is a happy place.

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.

My buddy just got one of those multi-level decks that span the entire back of the house, and it was composed entirely of composite. Don't know if it was Trex or one of the competitors. Mix of sawdust and recycled plastics with UV protection. He chose the one he did because of it's sturdiness and because it was molded with redwood grain.
Very nice.
Not too much more expensive in the long haul, considering that it's maintenance free. Biggest drawback was it is murder on sawblades. Think MDF on crack.

There was discussion of using composite, but Phil was concerned that the composite decking holds heat more than wood, and that in Arizona that could be an important detail. So, we went with wood.

I can see that as a concern, particularly as you are inevitably gonna run into recycled plastics.
Just kind of interested in how much work they've put into durability under extreme heat, because my buddy put a lot of research into what the specs were on durability under UV and durability under changing conditions [hot to cold].
And I must say, it's a sweet deck. Now to see how it looks 10-15 years from now.

That looks nice. I expect a great result. On other fronts your HOA sucks, because those stairs are indeed same as before in color and look almost as bad. Oh well at least I am sure they are safe now.

Those steps haven't been painted yet. The kickboards were recycled from the previous stairs, but the decking on the stairs is an unpainted redwood. Despite the grain patterns in the wood playing tricks on your eyes, they're completely straight and level now. In some spots we had to make a 3" adjustment to the right side.

I wasn't as concerend about the temperature affecting durability as I was comfort. I've experienced a hybrid wood and trex deck in 90 degree heat. The trex was too hot to stand on and I had to jump over to the wood decking. I can't imagine how that would affect not only the comfort on his feet, but also the surrounding temperature if the plastic is holding that much heat. If he were allowed to cover the deck, that would be another story.

The wall at the height it is has to stay. Have to maintain the look of the complex. Besides, whizzing over the wall would either mean wizzing on the parking lot, or the pool deck. I'm fairly confident none of my neighbors would appreciate that.

If the deck is 12" or less off the ground, yes you can use 2X6 for the joists. Anything higher should use 2x8

Well, the purpose of the "rule" or code is to prevent falls in case of breakage. So, it must be 12" from the top of the decking. It may even be 18" in your area. You would need to check with a local building inspector or call your housing authority.

Phibia, your defiantly a skilled craftsman.

Many is the time I’m in doing high end interior refinishing reno’s on $500,000 homes and literally watched the external reno’s like you’ve done go sour real fast.
This is incredible work IMO.
The lumber pattern really gives it a “desert” type look, and the use of the lattes gives the appearance of cut off from the main door thus creating more of a separate room, as opposed to “just a deck”.

And I’ll bet I can safely say the pic’s don’t do it justice.

FWIW, the entire deck in that picture slopes a little over a 1/4" per foot (including the counter), but the grill and the stainless doors are level. Which is why it looks a little goofy at the moment. I think the tile I'll be bookending the doors with will clean that "off-kilter" look up a bit.

Hey Phil, quick hi-jack.

I replaced the wrought iron on my front porch with cedar, and we originally planned to wait and paint it with the house. Since then, we've decided we would rather stain/treat it, and keep a more natural look.

Parts of it have weathered more because they are exposed to rain. When we stain it, is there a stain that will make the grey stuff and the non-weathered stuff the same color?

Any other suggestions on products to use?

You can either powerwash the grey away and wait for a few dry days before staining or you can use a baking soda/water mixture to artificially age the newer cedar to match the weathered cedar. I don't know of a product that will overpower the weathered look unless it's a surface stain.

I just read this entire thread, and can honestly say WOW!
Phibia, your defiantly a skilled craftsman.

Many is the time I’m in doing high end interior refinishing reno’s on $500,000 homes and literally watched the external reno’s like you’ve done go sour real fast.
This is incredible work IMO.
The lumber pattern really gives it a “desert” type look, and the use of the lattes gives the appearance of cut off from the main door thus creating more of a separate room, as opposed to “just a deck”.

And I’ll bet I can safely say the pic’s don’t do it justice.
Not too shabby a reno to have on your resume’ sir. Not shabby at all!

Geeesh! If you want to suck up that bad, how about just dropping the losers you're rooting for and start wearing Red & Gold?

Entire Napoleon Dynamite Plot Pieced Together Through Friends' Quotes
AUSTIN, TX—Although he has never seen the 2004 indie hit Napoleon Dynamite, Michael Osman, 23, has cobbled together its entire plot via his friends' endless quoting of the film. "Well, Napoleon's brother said, 'Don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day,' and then got a visit from his Internet girlfriend," Osman said. "Then Napoleon told his Uncle Rico that he could make 120 bucks 'in like five seconds,' and went to work on a chicken farm. Then Napoleon gave Trisha a drawing, said, 'It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip,' and asked her to the dance." Osman added that he has a pretty good idea what a liger looks like.

He's outside working on it right now. He spent all day buying a monster truck.

As of yesterday he said he was definitely going home Friday morning. Course, there's been three or four dates he was gonna go home that have come and passed.

That hammock was a steal, btw. Any of you w/ a Costco membership can pick one up there for $300.

You won't have the uber-sweet deck to set it on, though.

An extra bonus I noticed today (because, prior to today there was a tent outside preventing this effect)... those lattices are redwood, and have the same stain on them as the deck. When the setting sun (the deck is on the westside) the light comes through my "freedom" doors and gives my living room a pretty reddish glow.

Another guinea pig shot. Phil wanted some good night shots, so I'm figuring out using the night settings on my digi camera. No flash... leaving the shutter open longer. The deck's pretty as hell at night.

.EDIT: wrong pic... obviously.

I especially like the grill and counter. I think the three levels given your proclivity for drunkeness, though it looks great, could be dangerous as hell.

Nice work by Phil and I think Endo made a smart investment of his money.
