Awesome Design,,,What is the spacing between posts? - I am going to go for horizontal pipe rails and I love the top rail idea. What are the spans between your trimmed out 6x6 posts. My deck designer is telling me that the lack of support between posts will cause bowing and if weight were put on it it could be dangerous. Is it because it's IPE?

The width between the posts is about 42". The ipe' top rail is 1x6 and by nature is a very dense and strong wood. It has been there for about 8 years now and still is straight as can be. You should have no worries at all.
Good luck with your project!

I will be using that concept, except with clear cedar and professionaly sprayed 1 1/4" galvanized conduit. My only challenge is getting past the 'ladder effect' that is still part of code up here. Appreciate your time!

Corner post - How did you do your corner post where the pipe ends and turns another direction? Also did you face each post with something and are the pipes in the long section one pipe or individuals between each post? Thanks

The posts are made of 4x4 pressure treated lumber and capped with 3/4 Ipe' . Each pipe is individual and rests in holes that were drilled in the ipe' capping. Very time consiuming to say the least! :)

Mr Kramer hope you are doing well. May I request for one an advise. We are in process of completely renovating our house in India. We have planned a deck on the first floor which also will serve as the porch for our front door. Could you kindly advise on -
Which wood can we use for the rafters for decking?
What could be done on the waterproofing front so that no water drips as the deck is right over the main entrance door?
I would really appreciate due advise. Thanks. Cheers Priyanka.

Hello Priyanka,
Unfortunately, I do not have any knowledge of what products are available in India for the work you describe. Over here we would use Pressure treated lumber for the deck support. as for the waterproofing, I probably would have built a porch that has a rubber membrane roof and then built the deck over it. You also could check into the many underdeck roof systems but they are not really meant for a front porch application.

What did you do for the posts for the railing? Is it green treated cedar holding the deck up?

All framing is made from pressure treated pine. The posts specifically use a pressure treated 4x4 that is capped with ipe' 1x6 trim. The ipe' is drilled to receive each stainless steel pipe rail.

Do you have to caulk around the holes you have drilled to prevent moist getting trapped in the holes?

Caulking is not needed and actually could trap moisture in this case. The rails are stainless steel and the posts are pressure treated wrapped with Ipe' mahogany. All of these products are commonly used in coastal areas and hold up great. .

Phil wants deck railing with very low maintenance. We might need the stairs, like in this photo, so that we can walk down to a smaller deck where we can also sit in the shade of the trees. The larger deck will be for BBQs and container gardening - until I get a greenhouse!
