Originally, these were small round lights, fitting into wooden decking, by drilling through a small hole, and pushed in, to give a small light in the surface of the decking. Although they are not impressive during the day, at night they give a delightful effect. They can be stood on, last a very long time, and use very little electricity. They are operated from (usually) a 12V supply, plugged into the mains.
2) Nail together the four joists to create a frame the same size as the outlined area. Strengthen the joins with screws. Next, cut your floor beams to the same length as the frame and position them parallel to one another at 400mm intervals inside the frame. Secure the beams using three 75mm screws per beam end.
composite decking is warm under foot, it is non-slippery if well maintained, and is kind to bare feet walking over it. In Summer it stays nice and warm and you can dry your towels on it simply by laying them down on it.
Decide Your Deck Size – if your house and backyard is smaller and you won’t entertain large groups, you likely don’t need a large deck. Too large a deck can actually make the house appear smaller. Keep it simple, but add an angle or two to the deck design if you want. When building a wood deck, you can divide the deck into two areas – one area for lounging and sunning and another section for cooking and dining.
The pool header or coping is the cap at the edge of your swimming pool. You have different options, depending on your preference and budget. Bullnose and Squarenose are the two main styles of coping. Depending on your budget and taste, you can choose from reconstituted limestone, granite, marble, exposed stone, and travertine pool headers. Choose the right material to make your pool border interesting and relaxing.
Geometric pools feature straight lines and sharp edges. Its sleek appearance goes very well with homes with contemporary designs. Lap pools are also available.
