    edit: done a bug report post https://forums.hexus.net/hexus-sugge...sting-bug.html found out Chrome doesn't show pictures linked from the hexus.my albums for some reason..
    Doesn't work for me on Firefox, and the direct link is just a single pixel.

    Just tried Safari on iOS. Doesn’t work there either. How very bloody weird.

    Re: How can I find out/work out what bolts I need for my decking?

    ditto - same problems with that image. Firefox, various versions on different machines.

    Quick update:

    Put some numbers to your primary beams - as currently proposed (200x75 spanning 4.4m supporting half of the 4.28m joist span) you are 2.5x overstressed according to recommended codes if that primary beam spanned full length. NOT RECOMMENDED.
    Either increase to 2No 300x50 C24 bolted together but NB this puts your decking onto the ground if you want to limit it to 300mm height - awkward
    OR use those midspan props suggested earlier and keep the 200x75 beams. The props could be timber packers, masonry driveway paviors etc doesn't matter tbh. When propped you can use 2No M10 bolts at each connection instead (cheaper and more discrete)

    If you thumb-sucked that suggestion to use pairs of 12x2"s it was a jolly good one! You are clearly the man to choose between red-wire, blue-wire in the next Speed/24/Die Hard!

    Consider how you will raise the bases of the main timber posts so not in direct contact with the ground. Ideally 100mm off - so no ponding against the wood + reduced splash-zone effect. I'll have a think later about practical suggestions.

    Thank you. That's — once again — really useful!

    that's a 10ft brick wall behind it.

    the fence is to stop the St Bernard climbing up it and jumping over the wall (again)

    I'm a good neighbour, and I understand people want the best.. but that would have raised a complaint from me. It's flippin mammoth!!!!! it would house a dozen drunk teenagers.. and will one day. It's vast and its TALL!!!!

    the fence is for somthing else.. have you seen what a St Bernard can deposit on a lawn in a day? That other side is kid play area. That's what the fence is for.

    there did used to be a swimming pool, the entire width of the garden complete with roof. so that's actually small compared to what was there.
    but it should give an idea of what Dakids gazebo thing may look like (which is why I posted it). if they ever get to see the picture, cus only me and admins/staff can at the moment.

    and the fence was so Bernard doesn't climb on things. not going to show the other half of garden, it contains identifying stuff that's on google maps.



    garage in the background may be a roof idea too. only felt like https://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-Grey...of-14/p/137239 instead of proper slate.
