Kathy and Lyle asked me to help out in building a patio deck at their home. We used 2×8 beams on pre-cast concrete piers, 2×6 joists 16 inches on center using metal joist hangers, topped with 6 inch wide verandah boards.

We built a railing using 4×4 inch posts, 2×4 stringers, a 2×6 top rail and balusters. It took us two days to complete it, make it three days is you count removing the sod from the 24 x 16 ft area.
