@Gezza
Not all items are stocked by Bunnings , but they can be specially ordered
Concrete stumps are also easy to make yourself
You'll need some ply form, 6 mm galv rod reinforcement, 12mm Threaded rod and ready mixed bagged concrete
Alternatively, if you are going to use timber posts you will require Stirrups, Straps or pryda brackets

Hi @GBrown and @iamweilu,

 

Unfortunately the creator of this discussion thread is no longer a member of the community. I would recommend you create a new discussion thread and ask your deck questions in as much detail as possible. We have many experienced and knowledgeable members of the community who I'm sure would be happy to assist you.

 

Thanks,

 

Jason

Re: How to build a timber deck

Dear All, I’m also interested in tables for a deck below one metre high and bracing details.

currently planning one approx 800high. Struggled to find suitable concrete stumps as per Bunnings guide then found out minimum concrete stump size in QLD is 200 x 200. Haven’t got my own Franna so that’s not gunna work lol.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @HarveyB. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for sharing your project.

 

Span tables, specifications and relevant standards for your deck can be found in the Building Code of Australia. You might find snippets of the BCA on the relevant supplier websites for the products you are using on your deck. Building product suppliers often include specifications as a guide when purchasing their materials.

 

I'd encourage you to start your own discussion with as much detail as possible, that way our helpful members can assist with any specific questions you had on the deck.

 

We look forward to hearing more about your project and can't wait to see you get started.

 

Mitchell
