This is a deck and retaining wall that I just completed. The retaining wall is held back by deadmen that are attached via threaded rod to the wall. The frame for the deck is all ground contact treated material and the decking is TimberTech Twin Finish. It’s attached using my favorite screws, GRK Trim heads with the climatek coating.
This is a mantle that I made for a customer recently. The fireplace was red brick and had a small slate hearth before.
The new mantle is made from wood that we got out of the forest and milled to fit. Many thanks to Lisa for helping us out and allowing us to take wood from her property. 🙂
