The photos below illustrate the magnitude of the project. I have built a lot of decks in my lifetime as home projects, but this one sure exceeds anything I have ever done. The support beams are massive steel I beams and by my engineering estimate you could drive semis across that deck without any concern. There was some attempt to beautify with stone columns and they do add some grace to the structure. To an engineer the under structure has a symmetry and bold lines that are pleasing to view. Since the stream was nearly dry, I could get a streams eye view that will not be available this winter.
Looking forward to the ski season and the chance to lounge on the deck and view the skiers on the slope. A nice addition and upgrade to the area. Sorry that I didn't get to see the various stages of the project over the summer.
