Decking over concrete slab

Re: Decking over concrete slab

Hey mate, 


I cant remember precisely the width is about 4500 I think I put them at around 800, I just used blue plugs and batten screws to hold in place. Since the weight of the deck itself and no upward forces I went easy on the fixings to the concrete. I have since made some additions for those who are interested. 


Simple cantilever to support BBQ & stone benchtop, plywood flooring, cabinetry to come shortly.

Looking fantastic Andrew (@asarson)


When you have a minute it would be good if you could Start your own new discussion and share your project. It deserves its own thread! I'm sure members would be really inspired by what you have done.
