Default The Rancho Deluxe Deck Build

Ten years of discussion and planning finally came together this summer and we got our deck built. Here is a bunch of pics of the build. Thanks to our friend Bill who is a master craftsman with this fibrous wood substance (His specialty is spiral log staircases) versus my wood butchery. It came out very well. This first batch shows the start of framing.

Yet more pics. We used a combination of treated lumber and redwood with the decking, railings, posts and steps all in redwood.

Nice deck and a beautiful view! I just built a small deck (8x6) off our side entrance.

The last few pics. My finish crew oiling the deck. Enjoying the fruits of my labor, sitting in the tub with my poor mans chuckit playing ball with the dog. A view from the other end and Spirit posing on the completed deck.

I've built a few decks, and I have to say that one looks good! I like the redwood decking. It will be a great addition to the house, and pleasant place to relax and enjoy the view.

Nice deck and a great view. Your pics make it look so easy.

I like your poor mans chuckit, I'll have to make one of those.
