Backyard transformation - before and after

Re: Backyard transformation - before and after

Sorry for late reply @Yudi. The deck was quite large as you can see, I gave my mate a hand along with his worker. I may of saved a few $$ but all up to memory it may of been around 6-8k but I was quoted by one guy $12k so as I said I can’t remember. Normally people change $200 a square Meter so work your area out and that may help a little :smile:

 

Took around 3-4 days area was around 40sq2

Amazing result. Did you have to do a dig out for the deck? it looks quite close to the ground??? How high is it off the surface of the ground?

@Navman1081 Hey mate 

that’s a great question 

 

the one thing i wish we knew when building the house was we needed to dig down a certain depth for the deck to make it all fit. 
very lucky at the time there was no house next door and I managed to fit a mini diggger to dig down the required depth to allow for the deck framing. From memory it was around 350mm, once you add the decking, the Joyce and the beams plus little wedge stumps & a few stumps concreted in. The ground was so bloody hard but being compacted sand, I just had the hose running into the ground to soften it all up. Then it was a mission moving all the left over sand to the side block of land through the fence and down the retaining wall.
