Look at this deck!

Got a call from a homeowner that wanted an estimate on a patio awning. He said he was going to tear down his existing deck and already had a contractor starting the new deck next week.
Check out the deck he is tearing down. He said he added joist hangers to it when he bought the house.

That is awesome! I seen awesome before, that is the most awesome of awesome!!!! Never mind the 3 mile span - the beams running parallel with the joists is world class!!!!!

"I've 2 x 8 joists and I'm putting in 6 x 6 with double 2 x 8's for beams" That would sound pretty good to anyone. Who would assume this is what was meant?
My guess, the wind blew the plans about 1/4 turn, bout 90 degrees! LOL
Wow someone just doesn't get it...
lol...I thought the same thing. I had to get pictures...lol


I was in Florida last week and stopped at a Florist Shop. As I was sitting at the table waiting for my order I looked up at the ceiling.
You cant get any more ******* then this...best way to fix a leaky roof...lol

I'm no deck builder but I think the joists are running the wrong way.
I'd bet money he built it himself.
WOW!! That's all I gotta say about that!
There are plenty of old school decks and porches around here with the decking run out from the building. You just have to do the beams different:whistling
"Decks have beams right? This seems like a good place for one..."
Amazing, and they wonder why people end up bellow... and we have deal with all the BS and all the specialty brackets, and all that other good stuff because of A$$holes who build decks like that :censored:

Awesome, but no where near as awesome as the original. Nothing can ever compare to that. It is museum type awesome.
seen that before..
Nothing wrong with that deck OR the stairs. It's got a beam under it, so what's the issue? :laughing: Sometimes I need a good laugh...Thanks!

What's wrong with a little red (or silver) in your repairs? It ain't leaking on the customers, is it? :laughing:
shot #3 is pure genius:thumbup:
How do you drain those when they fill up?
When people call me to look at stuff normally I have to look a little maybe get a flashlight get a little dirty crawling around. Seriously what would you do if you got the call and saw that. I think I would just fall over laughing. Might not be appropriate but what else can you do.
this lady wondered why her stairs were a little bouncy
I shored them up and told her she was lucky she didnt end up in the basement
