So you posted that you finished your basement by yourself, but you find a deck too challenging?

I'd give you a hand but with 3 kiddos, I'm spread too thin as it is.

Could be because of time.

I'd probably rather save money by finishing a basement and paying someone to do a deck if time is an issue.

Since the deck is more of a structural thing...I want to leave it to the pros lol

That an a basement you can just come and go and make progress regardless of weather. A deck is kind of something that needs to be knocked out.

Let me know if you find a good one. I'm debating on redoing or just refinishing my current.

I'll tag on too if you don't mind. I'm doing a steel framed deck, but would prefer to have someone do the footings, steel posts, and 2 beams due to time constraints (and I don't want to lift a steel beam into place).

Construction starts today. I'll post before /after pics.

We have a pretty complicated design that my wife wanted. I got a few quotes I thought I would share

Quote 1: $10,500
Quote 2: $13,000
Quote 3: $13,500
Quote 4: $32,000 (This must be the "I don't wanna do it" price, LOL)

We went with the $10,500, but I offered the guy less and he took it.

To rebuild the deck exactly the way it was would have only been around $5,000....but we wanted something much nicer and we are adding a firepit to it. Double square footage too.

I used to build decks and fences as a side gig. We would take the material cost, and double it. So that's 5K for materials & 5K labor. I'm anxious to see what 10K buys today.

I am curious. We are wanting to really upgrade the backyard with a new or refinished deck and a patio

Jason Weatherman is doing it, he's done 95% of the work in the last 2 years. We've been saving for this since we moved into the house in Feb of 2015. Not going crazy as this is not our forever home, right now the deck is rotting apart and is an insurance liability. We are just going with a straight replacement, 16x16 deck, with stairs that have a platform mid way down. Nothing special beyond that. I just wanted a deck I can put a grill on, and also not worry about my child stepping on a screw or falling over the side due to loose boards. Previous owners did not take care of it, and it was on it's way out when we moved in. We opted for a new roof with the sellers instead of the deck, so it worked out ok in the end.

Sounds like what I want to do, would you mind sharing cost? Is it pressure treated or cedar?

4,750.00 with a tin roof/gutter installed under the deck so we can sit on our patio and not get rained on. I believe we are going pressure treated, he's coming by this weekend to look at my shed and the east side of my house for some grading issues. Trying to wrap a few spring projects I don't have time for into a week long process if the $$ is right. I have enough in cash to cover it, but I pulled a stupid low rate line of credit out to front it until July. Not going to burn through the savings until I see wtf Trump does over the next few months.

The 28 x 16 low level deck (2 steps down to the yard) I built at my Blue Springs house cost about 3K to build. 4 ft deep footings, sonotube concrete forms, double 2x10's for beams, 2x8 joists, 6x6 posts, and 2x6 decking, screwed together (no nails)..........all with PT lumber. This price included joist hangers, all hardware, rails, caps and dusk/dawn low voltage lighting.

I'm looking forward to the pics. I'm planning to rework & add on to the deck at my current residence, so fishing for some new ideas.
