Brilliant @danieltheman. You deserve to feel proud. 

 

Got any advice for people having a crack at their own deck and/or outdoor entertaining area? What are some of the things that you learned along the way or found difficult?

Re: New outdoor entertaining area

Best to ask your council that question @HoppersTech as rules differ. In this case I doubt permission was needed as it was a replacement - the footprint of the house wasn't changing. But hopefully @danieltheman can confirm.

Great to see you back on Workshop @danieltheman, many thanks for the updates.

 

Not sure if you would have noticed the view count on your post. It's now approaching 16,000 views! Congratulations, your patio (and can-do attitude) has inspired so many people. 

 

We look forward to seeing what you turn your hand to next. And we certainly encourage you to reach out to the community if you need a hand with anything.

 

Thanks again,

 

Jason
