New deck to cover broken porch tiles

New deck to cover broken porch tiles

The weekend I moved in, something heavy was dropped on the tiles of my front porch, breaking one and leaving a few loose. I decided to build Merbau decking over the top and I could not be happier with the result. Took me 6 hours and cost $250. Not bad for a girl who has never used power tools before!

 

Next project will be to build a cover for the hose and then the gas meter.
