The light fixtures came from Masterpiece Lighting here in Atlanta. I'm not sure who the specific manufacturer was.

can i tile over existing wood deck - I currently have a 12x24' wood deck which is unfortunately rotting in some places. I want to keep the space but not sure how I want to handle fixing the floor (in addition I would like to close it in). Can I put plywood over my decking and then add the slate/tile floor?? Any ideas?

The short answer is no, that is not a good idea.

jbalta, outdoors only if they are redwood cypress or cedar. Anything else will be a termite feast. Indoors you're probably OK, but I would have regular inspections and preventive treatments done....

Yes, it was a process known as "Pastel Cote" from Boral Bricks. Unfortunately, they discontinued a the product a few years ago.

It's actually not painted brick. It is a product from Boral Bricks called "Pastel Cote", which is a product meant to go over brick. It's thicker than paint...almost like stucco. I think they may have discontinued this product however.

Don Duffy Architecture
You could use plywood. You need to be concerned about the joist deflection as much as the subfloor. Make sure you install a water proof membrane and some drian matt product. Water will get thru the tile and settign bed. That moisture has to have some place to go. It is best if the sub floor is pitched do drain. The moisture wicking out will bring lime deposits with it. This can be unsightly after awhile. Careful detailing is needed here.
I do not think a thin set application on plywood is very permanent. Tiles can become loose with time or by freeze thaw or by deflection of structure. Stone on a slab is a superior way to go. There are thin set systems available like Mape or Shlueter
I would recommend you consult an engineer. There is much to think about and the investment should be a carefully planned.

Thank you kindly for the advise. Yes, it seems that the task requires much more planning than I would've anticipated, since this is to be done outside. When you say slab, are you talking about concrete slabs like the sidewalk slabs that you would stack side by side? Clearly that would require steel pan support as well as Dresser Homes mentioned to hold the weight.

I think the other alternative would be to just use a water proof membrane with proper pitching for the water to drain and then use the Synthetic (Trex type material) planks for the flooring. I would have preferred a proper floor like in a room, but that seems to be too much work. I will consult with an Engineer anyway.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

There are no hard-and-fast rules about porch style; this porch is full of Southwestern flavor. Careful attention was paid to the material palette, including the painted brick wall, the large varied stones on the floor and the rich wood ceiling.
Becky Harris added this to I Spy: Barn Stars
Pennsylvania Dutch or not, there is something about these metal stars that reminds me of the American West. Maybe it's because it's like an enlarged boot spur. Maybe it's because Texas is The Lone Star State. Maybe it's because it makes me think of Pee Wee Herman calling out "the stars at night...are big and bright..." so that the crowd would respond (clap clap clap clap) "deep in the heart of Texas!" Red barn stars symbolize emotions, passion, charisma, lust and creativity.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Southwestern
Style Secret: Sturdy FurnishingsSouthwestern furnishings have solid (even chunky) profiles and a rugged sensibility. Mix and match pieces crafted from craggy wood, patinated iron and tin, and woven branches and grasses. Painted furniture suits this style as well, especially when it bears sanded edges or a distressed texture. For upholstered furnishings, choose natural, durable materials such as leather, cotton and burlap.But remember ... Too many heavy elements can make a room feel leaden. Balance thick-bodied furniture with spindlier pieces to lighten the visual weight. Try a skinny cocktail table or two, a slim chair or a spare shelving unit.
