My too-small concrete patio needed an upgrade, so I'm building a DIY floating deck that will extend off of the patio and provide lots more room for entertaining. In part one, I'm covering the build of the frame and efforts to prevent moisture issues. Also find out why you should use Ground Contact lumber for a project like this.
In this series, join Ugly Duckling House as Sarah challenges co-host At Charlotte's House to remodel their guest bedrooms. Come for the room makeover, stay for the smack talk. It's basically DIY with an excuse to make fun of the other person's terrible design decisions.
My back yard needed a lot of help. So I rented a backhoe, bought some fill dirt, and gave it a makeover! I also shared a few live videos during the process to give blog readers (uglyducklinghouse.com) behind-the-scenes recaps as the days went on. Thanks to my sponsor, Compact Power Equipment Rental, for their help on this project!
