How to build low level deck between 2 brick walls?

Deckfin.png

Hey, 

I'm building a deck:

  • 250-400mm high (ground is on a slope)
  • Size is 4600 x 2270mm 
  • Earth underneath
  • both 4600mm sides are concrete/brick walls

What footing, bearers, joist arrangement would be best for this layout?

 

Thanks!

Re: deck steps material

That came out looking sensational, @aaron11! Wonderful job.

 

I bet you are particularly impressed with the results, as there's nothing like completing a good deck. I recently completed one myself, and I'd hazard a guess that building a deck sets off a very primal set of instincts similar to building and stoking a campfire. It's oddly satisfying to see what's essentially a pile of very pretty sticks joined together into a functional structure.

 

I really like that you've used reclaimed timber. Good for the environment and the wallet. I am loving the action shots too.

 

Many thanks for sharing your results, as I trust they will provide our members with an exceptional amount of inspiration. I can't wait to see what you contribute next.
