DIY - Floating Deck

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot

Hey there!

Just as you saw it in the patio reveal last week, the floating deck was the project that turned things around in our backyard.

It was a BIG project. I was so silly to think I could build it all by myself! Nope. My brother-in-law gave me a huge helping hand with this project. I'm so very grateful for his help.


I'm also thankful for the Home Depot's invitation to complete this challenge. It was the push I needed to get rid of this disaster.


I learned a whole lot about building outdoor structures, something new to me. ;)


And, as a good rookie, I got into some problems... including a snow storm, well, nothing I could do about the snow. :/


But in the end, everything turned out way better than I expected it.

    1. Thanks Diana! I'm used to handling long pieces of molding but that's nothing compared to all that heavy pressure treated material. I can't thank my BIL enough!

  5. I'm sorry your shitty neighbours banned the taller screen but the shorter handrail looks so lovely with the post caps. Plus I'm sure it's nice for you to see the woods behind the fence. I also really love the string lights but I can't see what they're attached to - are they long metal stakes? xx

    1. Haha Thanks Kate! It was upsetting at the beginning, but I'm a believer that things happen for a reason, and well, I'm somewhat glad the initial plan had to be changed.
      It was important for me to have those lights, they create such a wonderful atmosphere! As a last minute resource I got three 3/4in. EMT Conduit -(Electric Metallic Tube), sprayed painted them black and secured them to the corner posts so I could hang the lights from them. I might do a post about it. ;)
      Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comment!

  7. It looks just wonderful. I wish I had been there for the neighbor complaint. I bet after my years working for a HOA / Construction company I could have helped you win that battle. Neighbors can be such blessings, and like yours and mine....sometimes they can be whiny pains too. But I am glad it all worked out, and I hope you get years of enjoyment out of it. You guys did a beautiful job!

  8. OH I almost forgot too.....I am guessing if you double check your HOA rules....you could probably put up a row of arborvitae against your fence. That is probably not against he rules and will give you that screen you need. Then if you can do that, I'd make a sign to hang on one of them that says "Good neighbors make Good Fences AND SCREENS".

    1. LOL. I thought about that possibility, other neighbors have done it, but at this point, I'm just leaving it like that. The potting benches and the open umbrella are good screens for now. ;) Thanks Christine!
