Diy Back Yard Deck

Hey there Hometalk,

We are are excited to bring you this quick and easy diy back yard grilling deck! It's not a complicated build, and it also did not take too long to make.

Here’s a quick sketch I did of the layout we desired in the back yard. It helped us to visualize what we wanted to build.

First we picked up all of the supplies and loaded up everything into our Honda Odyssey. Van life!

We cleared the area that we had picked to build the deck. We used post hole diggers in order to get our 4x4 posts deep enough to hold for the long haul.

Next we dropped in the 4x4s and added cement for extra stability.

Next we added in the trim pieces.

We used L brackets and wood screws to fasten everything together.

Next we ran support beams about 16 inches apart.

Then we ran 2x6’s in the desired pattern we wanted.

We finished off with rose stone pavers and a grill to do all those summer time barbecues on!

Hope y’all enjoyed and happy grilling!

    What if the grill has a flare up? Aren’t you afraid your house could catch on fire?
