    That's up to them...LOL. If they want me to do it then it will cost about as much as it did to build it.

    I used to work at an apartment complex that I lived in during the summers and was in charge of maintaining the pool. for about three weeks the manager would not listen to me when I told him that we needed to completely rebuild the water filtration system and had me keep chemically shocking the pool to kill the algae that was growing in it. That lasted until there was a very irate mother in the office because her daughters hair was permanently died green. The really bad thing about it was that the only way to get the green out of her bleach blonde hair was to cut it off. Even dies would not take to it after that. If we would have left the pool with the algae in it all would have been fine as there wasn't anything toxic in it but just looked nasty.
    Long story short, We finally got a new filtration system after the owner of the property was notified "anonymously" about the situation and it wasn't but about two more months that there was a new property manager on staff.

    Thank you @Bodean and I think I will take your idea on the double and a half. Mine is going to be bad enough this fall and it's a normal 19x12 without all of the walls and pergola.

    Thank you @Bodean All I have left to do is to shadowbox the North wall on the deck and then put the gate up for the cedar fence. The crazy part is that if you look at it from the outside it looks the same as on the inside. So instead of about 90 feet of fencing I have picketed 180 feet.

    I finally got the finishing touches put on today.
    First the shadowbox on the north wall of the deck

    Now the crazy nosey neighbor can't see when they are out on the deck.
    The gate is finished

    And all of the post caps are on

    Then at night, like the deck, the fence lights up.

    Nice work indeed !

    Though, I wouldn't like to live inside this giant wood box of a garden...

    Funny how we build our homes differently depending on which part of the planet we are.

    Very nice work. Ya done good.

    However, it appears you aren't finished. You forgot the razor wire... ;)

    I have a crew working on our deck here right now. Yank out the hot tub (which we only used twice in 10 yrs...but it came with the house) and deck over the hole. That will allow me to move my BBQ grill out to the end of the deck, instead of near the house where it sits now. They're cleaning out all the rot (fascia boards, soffits, sill-plates, etc) around the house and putting in new wood. The caulking guy appears to be an artist; nice work. They'll repaint the whole house when they're done. Kinda the same advertising as you got. These guys rebuilt a house down the street and I did the 'nosy neighbor' thing. Their work looked good, fair pricing, ready to go to work...so I contracted with them. They started when they said they would and have been working on it every day since. That's rare in my neck of the woods. :confused::D

    At our retirement 'money pit' in Myrtle Beach, SC, we're about to add 8ft to the comparatively tiny deck (which is about 12 x 12) and include a pergola. Basically a complete tear-down and rebuild. No privacy stuff for me. All I want is water plumbed to where I can install a sink. Gotta clean fish somewhere, y'know...

    OK time for round 4.
    This is a deck that I was contracted to build and am now about half finished. All of the hard parts are done as of today.
    The floor is 8 feet above the ground and the old deck was 16x12. They wanted a 24x12 and to have the stairs relocated. Keep in mind that I'm a one man show when I build these. First I had to tear off the old deck. That was day 1
    1528084000445.jpg
    1528084010757.jpg
    As you can see, it was quite dated. During the tear off I discovered that part of the deck had been bolted to the cantileveres from the original balcony from the early 70's.
    1528084197846.jpg
    1528084216366.jpg
    So day 2 was to put the ledger board with joist hangers up and cut the posts to length since the lumber didn't get delivered until almost 4 hours past schedule.
    1528084546726.jpg
    1528084556446.jpg
    Day 3 was putting all of the floor joists up.
    1528084675193.jpg
    Rained enough yesterday that I didn't work on it so I let it dry out and went back today and trimmed all the joists even, installed the rim joists and have the stairs.
