We finally came to the tough decision to sell the deck instead of putting the deck up on the back of our house.
I was really looking forward to the elevated deck off the back of our Queenslander, but we will still be able to use the pavers from our old house to put a patio out the back of our house.
Ironically I just heard back from the Townsville Council about my new deck design this week. The next step in that process would have been to contract an engineer to do an engineering certificate for the deck using the steel frame instead of the timber frame.
This actually had no bearing on us selling the deck as we had come to that decision before hearing from council.
