Pretty clean looking...:thumbsup:

What are you using for posts?
once you see how perfectly in plane the joist are you realise it's the best framing for synthetics
Posts? I can't just leave the scaffolding there?

This one gets wood on top.
Railing material? You better have talked them into glass or cable!
How did you make the beam? Did double up or is it a special ordered piece?
I think it looks nice and clean, please post some more pictures as it progresses.
Gets my vote.

I love the gentle slope of the lawn.

Nice! Looks like a fin project.
I heard a rumor about this... and here I was hoping to see the same spitfire who left a couple months ago.:laughing:

Are you using ipe clips substitute self tappers?

I third the scaffolding notion, its such a pain in the ass to pick up anyhow.:clap:
I wish they supplied that stuff out here, I'm really intrigued....
Two studs or joists screwed back to back like an I-beam, then the open sides get capped with track and that's screwed to the sides of the joists making one big heavy box.

Just ipe rails with tehk balusters. She did not want more glass to clean and did not like cable rails.

Yes, I am using ipe clips with self tappers.
I will see how it works out.
Looks like a fun project for sure! Glad to see ya around Darcy.
I'm going to have to research this some more so I can sell one. It looks fun to build!

Do you use track as ledger? With my very limited knowledge of metal framing... it seems like it would be weak at that point if it is just a piece of track. Am I missing something or just ignorant of the strength?
Looks good Darcy. Glad to see you back around.
Doesn't look fun, it looks like you're building a deck.
You don't have fun building decks?
I think they are a freaking blast!:thumbup:

Yes, track lagged to the house.

I guess it more fun then sitting in a cubical farm.

I got mouths to feed and a bad machinery habit to maintain, so I really just like the money part.
