Most of the paving area was level with just a slight fall out from the door as expected for drainage. I used offcuts of the framing
timber at regular spaces where needed on top of the pavers beside the frame (not under) and brought the frame up to level then screwed the offcuts to the inside of the frame with the same bugle screws that hold the frame together. See image I tried to draw how it worked. Hope that helps.
Great! Thanks Stuardo. I think I understood this. I guess I will have to use this in some places.
The paver surface is pretty sturdy and been around for years. So I am sure it will hold the frame firmly in place. I did consider removing the pavers but was apprehensive of what I may find and end up with much more work. But removing pavers is not completely out of plans yet. Will decide next week. Let me know if you think that's a better approach. Thanks.
Hope you are well.
As this has been an incredibly popular project this year I thought I'd check in to see if you could please share an update with us.
Hi, Sorry I've been busy with the born of my first child. Here some pics of finished deck. I've used the modular decking frame from bunnings and took some of the tiles to put the post in. And for the top used Merbau again from bunnings. Overall very satisfied with the outcome.
Thanks everyone who helped. Without this forum it was impossible.
Wow @hadi, sounds like double congratulations are in order. It's great you've finished the deck and what wonderful news that you've had your first child. We are so thrilled for you.
When you get a chance, can you please try adding those photos again? There was no images on your post. Please let me know if you need a hand with uploading them.
Great work @hadi, congratulations. And a big congratulations on your birth of your first child - that's so exciting. What an amazing time it must be for you.
Thanks so much for coming back and sharing your completed deck, and for your kind words that the community assistance you received was invaluable. We're so pleased to hear it.
Looking forward to seeing what you tackle next!
Enjoy this special time with your family,
That is a beautiful deck @hadi and you should be proud of what you achieved. I hope you found the modules easy to work with and very sturdy when finished as I did. It seems Workshop is helping deck Australia one yard at a time. Congrats on your new child as well.
Great looking deck there @hadi .
I'm looking at doing something similar myself. Just want to know if you used dynabolts to secure the bearers to your house or did you just leave it free-standing?
