This low-profile deck was built over alfresco tiles to expand the sitting area in the backyard.

The project

 

I turned my boring backyard into an amazing sitting area using Ekodeck decking.

I used treated Pine 140 x 45mm for the frame and Pryda joist hanger suits 45 x 140mm to support them.

I placed sheeting under the deck to prevent weed growth.

For the tiled alfresco area, I used treated Pine 70 x 35mm for the framing and fixed the timber to my alfresco tiles with plugs and screws. I had to pre-drill holes in the tiles for the plugs and screws.

Overall it cost me roughly $6,500, and more than half of this cost was for the Ekodeck boards.
