Thought it was about time to add some more pics of reno's being done in our old house.
the original deck had a poorly constructed railing around it, we live in a high rainfall area and normal steel nails were used for the railing so after about 3 years it was falling apart (from the previous owners)
We also did like the cross rail design as we have grand kids and there is a high likely hood of them falling through
The only way to get down into the back yrad was via the north end down some piddly steps
I removed all the old timber rails and cleaned them up for reuse as much as possible
used some 40x40 LOSP for the vertical posts.
The i build some steps in the middle to access the games room we restored (in a previous post)
The north end also is wear the weather comes in so makes it unusable if its raining
I was able to source some nice doors cheap and we the build a wall with second hand windows also
What a fantastic transformation you have created! I love what you did with adding the window and doors to stop poor weather coming onto the deck. The doors and windows actually look like they were custom made for that space, it is awesome that they were second hand.
Looking forward to seeing what else you have been up to.
Wooooo Love the weather break idea! It certainly lifts the patio area up a notch or two! Also the width of your middle steps. I always think of smaller width ones (purely functional in my thinking) but these really expand the outlook. Definently something to file away and reuse
Hi @Dave-1 , we enjoy it alot more now that we can use it mostly all year.
the smaller steps went down to nowhere before so my wife had the idea of the larger steps that were not that expensive to build , about $250.00 off memory they lead down to the old shed we did up
Everytime I go to Bunnings I wander over and look at the stair stringers. I have ideas for my front steps and want to build a larger version I like the thinking of a small increase in the cost and a much more substantial look is achieved.
