Looking for tips on how to build my deck over a short man-made river with a fountain to circulate water on one end and a fire pit in the middle. I want to be able to walk over the whole thing so it needs to be covered in a clear material so I can see the river.
that's darned pricey, and your shoes will scratch it up in no time. lexan in 4x8s of a half or 3/4 inch, suitable for dasher boards, is probably a couple hundred bucks per.
how about having Bogus Falls and Fake Creek run diagonally under the deck, curve about a garden, and tuck back under for the recovery and pump area? don't forget to build an access way behind a gate so you can paw out the wet rotting leaves and replace the pump every spring and fall
or have a deck exit like a little arched foot bridge that goes over Fake Creek into the garden?
because of ember issues that set decks on fire, you will need to find a gas firepit kit and get its installation requirements online. there is going to have to be a minimum fireproof area around and above it, and your local code guys have to look at your plans and approve them to be safe.This message has been edited.
