Thanks .... That wall is a brick wall, then air gap, then in that area its foundation block and then gravel fill. The steps are not attached to the brick, they are on earth pads. The steps are 4' wide with (4) stringers. Yup the flower pot is a big one! It holds all the cooking herbs and various salad greens. The center is a composting tube the you put your scraps in to decompose which in turn feeds the rest of the container.
Quote from: Steeley – I like your work.. is that wall the steps go down along actual brick, or brick-faced concrete? (And that's a hell of a flower pot!)
I have to say that is one heck of a deck you have there, very nice! Adding in all those stairs would make me mental. Love the look of the epay, I cant afford that but like to look at it Say with an epay deck why are you looking for cedar scraps
I was going to replace the PT deck boards on my deck until I priced various other options, and then decided, hey this PT looks nice. Not really shown in the pictures, but next to the deck is an enclosed/screened in area which is where we hang out, you can see that area above the steps.
I think I fixed all of the code issues, there are no more posts that look like this: That is craftsmanship ... poorly notched (and any notching is not allowed to start with), and then held in place with 3 deck screws, not structural screws, but good old snap when they fail deck screws .. brilliant
