    Hung my old living room TV in my bedroom, did the whole hidden wires approach as I always do, can't stand wires hanging out of any of my TVs!

    Finally got the yard taken care of after 3 years of dirt pit and weeds. Started by building a deck. Never done it before. So of course I decide to make it more complicated than a basic design. Still needs steps and some garden boxes to prevent the toddler from falling off. Pretty happy with how it turned out.



    Lots of additional blocking to support the picture frame and centre strip. Joists 12" on centre to support 45 degree chevron pattern.

    If you’re referring to my post, thx! Came out much better than expected. Was waiting for a major screw up to show itself at every next step but it never really came. I don’t think I’d do it again though. My soft office body is broken... haha

    Did you use any landscaping fabric underneath? If not, won't weeds eventually grow through the deck?

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Yup, including swale to guide water away from the house and 3 inches of rock underneath.

    Ripped out most of the old dock, just left the crib and a little of the onshore structure... rebuilt everything more or less as it was. Have finished all the structure and decking will be done next trip. Was a super fun vacation, especially ripping out old railroad ties that had 60 years of roots growing in and around them

    Curious, is there any bylaw regarding building the deck right next to the fence? I built my own that way as well, but don't know if it violates bylaws or not.

    This was discussed in another thread recently. If I remember correctly it's below a certain height (24"??) it's not considered a deck so the side clearance isn't an issue.

    That came up a while back. This case looks like a Zero lot line (duplex/shared wall), so you can build right to it. Otherwise if it's under 2ft high, you can build it anywhere you like, if it's over 2ft high you need to follow the normal setbacks.

    Cool thanks guys. I presume 2 foot high limit doesn't include the railings?

    2 foot to the deck surface. You don’t even need railings on a deck under 2 foot if you don’t want.

    Continued to work on my deck over the weekend.

    Looks go so far, cladding the kitchen in stone? How come you didn't opt for cement board over pressure treated plywood?

    Do you do enough outdoors to justify a kitchen like that? Is your actual kitchen right inside? Seems like wasted space to me. I imagine it would look pretty slick when completed though!

    Some people LOVE eating on their patios man. My Sister and her family always do. They have a wicked outdoor space and use the shit out of it.
