Here’s how it works:
• If you have just finished a project, the company is there to offer you work for the price you set, as a “thank you” for paying them. They may want to put together whatever is required.
• If you want to try a project the company has not offered, ask if you can join their crew. If they have a project listed, it will be at least 15 feet long with at least 1×2 lumber. (We didn’t have the 2×4, which I’ll discuss next.) I went to try an 18′ by 6′ project. A little rough, but it was workable.
• If you want to try something new for yourself, ask about the cost of the material you’ll use and make sure you know how much of that amount you’ll need to buy in materials. (If I had to guess, it might range between $50-150, but we’ll talk about figuring it out.)
Before you buy, think about how much you’ll need to complete that project.
We purchased 2×4 lumber, 2×2 lumber, and 2×1 lumber. It cost $8/sqft.
1 – This was the wood we used to build our deck with some hardware attached at each corner. You may need a little less, depending on the amount of wood you need for your deck and the length of time you’ll need it.
2 – This was the wood we used to build our deck house with a 3rd person roof. You may need to cut a small bit more than this for a larger deck. You could also make a 2×1 with no holes to make a 1×50, but 1×50 is so darn versatile.
3 – This was the wood we used to build our deck house with a 2×4 roof. You may need less for a 1×50. A 2×2 is easier to split. I would recommend a 2×1.
4 – This was the wood we used to built our deck house with a 1×2 roof. You may need more wood for a 1×50 or a 2×16.
5 – This was the wood we used to build our deck house with a 2×16 roof. You may need more wood for a 1×50. Also, we sawed some 2×8 wood to make small planks for a patio table we bought.
