So we decided to build a Deck to extend our front patio area; and this is how it went. This was more or less a continuation of the Bunker and Hot Tub base construction, and the idea was to build a deck to surround the new hot tub as well as extend the patio out to approximately 5 metres deep by 12 metres long
Originally, construction of the deck was to be in timber, however, it was decided that constructing it in steel would be cheaper, stronger, and longer lasting.
Either way, due to the hilly nature of our plot, concrete pads had to be put in first to support the deck and level it up. You can see the start of some of the concrete pads in the photo.
