Sunroom on the deck part 4
Finished putting the foam wedges on the other upright and cut the 2×8 upper header with a 3/8 inch deep by 1/2 inch wide rabbet to accomodate the upper edge of the safety glass ceiling panels.
Sunroom on the deck part 2
I’m not surprised, the hardware did not call like they said they would. So after supper I worked for a bit and got the front wall of the sunroom in place. A few tweaks and adjusts along the way.
Sunroom on the deck
Starting today on the sunroom. Picked up lumber at Central yesterday and put in order to price aluminum flat bar. 2 inch x 10 ft. They had stock there but it was only 1-1/2″ wide x 6 ft long. Put the floor boards down and the spacers in place for the railing.
Sunroom glass installation design
Earlier I talked about designing the sunroom with Sketchup software. I plan to span the 2×6 rafter 24 on center and the rafter are approximately 111 3/4 inches long. There will have to be blocking put in place, one for sure, possible 2 per rafter, to prevent the rafters from warping in the sunshine.
Rebuilding a deck
This deck is in need of some real TLC. Everything needs to come out and be replaced.
A friend asked for some help with extending their deck to meet up with the rear deck.
Deck improvements with High rise skirting
The picture to the left is where the idea comes from. For lack of a better way to say it, let’s call this project high rise skirting. The idea is to improve the look of the lower portion of this deck and soften it with some curves.
Deck 16ft x 8ft single level
This project took a couple of days to do. It started out as a screened in deck, like a 3 season porch, but the plan was changed halfway through due to budget concerns.
A friend asked me to take a look at a deck that was built many years ago. He recently fixed up some of the exterior fencing and now the deck needs some real TCL. Wow…no kidding. An hour into it I had to stop and call him. There’s some SERIOUS rot going on at the house threshold.
Neighbor gets a new deck
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.
