That would be difficult here. The roof line is too low, and brand new gutters to work around. I'm thinking about a gazebo-type area to the one side, at the edge, but that will be something I have to design and integrate.

Barb - Check out Rob Cameron - Sketchup for Woodworkers. It is a good place to start.

Absolutely. Curiously, he mainly uses groups, not components. But it's a really good way to get your feet wet free. After that, the Taunton Press "Sketchup for Woodworkers". I think it cost around $20. Also, individual methods on Youtube from the likes of Jay Bates and Matthias Wandell. They both have their own take (and shortcuts) on good ways to do things.

Are you talking about the decking, Rick? They're treated, but because there was no upkeep on the wood, they're in horrible shape (as you can see.) The sun destroyed them. Cracked, split, etc.

I forgot to add that the only problem with Jay and Matthias' youtubes is that they're not in a logical learning order. Jay is so good that I told him that if he would make all his stuff in a natural progression for new learners into a course, it would be sellable. I'd buy it.

@MT Stringer & @chessnut2 I just need to have something to draw out my plans on this deck that my blonde polack mind can wrap her head around. I asked my aunt to have my cousin get 'hold of me in hopes of his input on this thing, (he helped my mom with her deck 30 years ago - also built it for her.) Not sure, however if I'll hear from him. Not holding my breath, so I'm doing what I can with my means to work on this, and at least get some sort of drawn plans together.

On another note, does anyone know anything about or used the Camo Deck Fastener Tool? From what I've read so far, it may be better to go with the CAMO Edge Deck Fastening Tool, but Ken and I saw it in action on a deck being built on You Tube and really liked the idea of no nails showing on the deck boards, and less chance of splinters from those screws.

Be sure to keep your drawn plans. If you ever do take the sketchup plunge, that would be a good project to learn on, since you'll already be familiar with the design and have your measurements already.
