    I would have upgraded to Cedar for my deck for that price too! Its doesn't warp as bad as the pressure treated, it smells amazing and generally speaking the lumber is of way higher quality.

    I think the 3 small planters (4', 5' & 6' lengths) was about $600 in lumber only. And I skipped the big box stores and ordered directly from a lumber yard as well. HD and Lowes lumber is garbage shit.

    City code does not allow it to be attached to the fence. I found this out when I bought my last house and the seller had to get an easement from the city or else tear the deck down and rebuild it.

    Speaking of decks, finished this one up for a fellow Beyonder today.

    Looks great.

    Owner should have put a fence around the window well? Seems. Little sketchy that there is a step all the way around except for 1 area where there is 3 ft drop

    There is a BBQ going in that corner. That should deter people away from it lol

    Flat pack cabinets?

    And around the house, replaced the whole sunroof assembly on my wife's SUV, toughest part was getting the sun visors back into place - that was probably a quarter of the time my son and I spent on it. Overall, 2 or so hours for the old assembly out and the replacement in and working.

    I don't think that's how it works. A deck is a deck, under 24" just means it doesn't need a permit.

    Ikea PAX? Start with the biggest boxes, those are your wardrobe frames. After you have all those stood up and secured where you want them, then start with the little boxes.

    Each box has it's own instructions. You should have the planner print out that tells you where you planned each accessory to go.

    So that's actually my deck, Spikers did a great job on it.

    In terms of the side setback, there is actually a path that runs along that side of the house and the gate to the backyard is there too. The deck is actually a rebuild of the deck that was already in place and on the RPR, the only difference is 2" in height and a few inches in width. It's maybe 3" from the fence (which straddles the property line). Window well protrusions are on that side of the house as well. The only stipulation for AC is that is be a certain distance from the property line, so I located that on the opposite side of the house in order to keep the use of my path.

    The BBQ is going by the window well on the back of the house, but I will probably make a little railing section if more than 5 or 6 people fall in.

    Interesting. That's not really how the CofC website portrays it.

    The image you posted is for a deck. If you are below the height requirement they don't consider it a deck. I believe they might just call it a patio.

    I've read their website up down front and back as I'm in the process of building a deck right now. Their site is horrible to find reference but they basically refer to a deck below 24" as a patio and treat anything a I've that as a deck which would then apply to the diagram you posted. They really need to make the information on their site earlier to find and understand

    I recently hired a contractor to build my deck and he said similar thing as I asked him about the deck codes and railings. My deck height is less that 2 ft so all the code does not apply and I can do pretty much anything I wanted in terms of design and structure.

    Uh... I always forget how much building ikea sucks... done for now, still need to cut the kick board, pull the outlet through the back, and also move the light fixture since the door swings into the junction box

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

    I always thought the 1.2 m from the side of the house is either for drainage or access but neither seem to apply in his case with a duplex.
