Old Project - Deck

Last summer we purchased a new camper as our old one just wasn’t cutting it anymore. So, we had to upgrade and lift the deck. My son being a true carpenter made short work of it reusing several decks combined to create a 36′ × 8′ beauty. It is free standing and floating on deck blocks. I designed the whole thing and lent a hand with all the CMS cuts. It took him a little over 4 hours to build it, having all the neighbours lift the decking onto the frame need a lot of people, so my wife went from camper to camper asking " can I borrow some men" which got more than a few laughs. It is made from pressure treated spruce.it seems to hold up well so far, having 25 people on it without moving during a party, but we will see in the spring if it has moved much with the snow and frost.

Looks very nice Chris. Lucky you to have such a handy son and fast too!

I think he’s build hundreds of decks. This one was a bunch of pieces that needed to be joined and a solid but not permanent frame so it went up real fast!
