Low profile deck

Re: Low profile deck

@Abhijit 

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.

Re: Low profile deck

Great! Thanks Stuardo. I think I understood this. I guess I will have to use this in some places. 

Regards,

Abhijit

Re: Low profile deck

Hi Jason,

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.

Regards,

Abhijit

Hi @hadi,

 

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. 

 

Thanks,

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.

Re: Low profile deck

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.
