Under Deck Storage

Building a gate for under deck

We built our house five years ago, but there are still many ongoing projects. The front deck is one of them....or at least UNDER the deck. Because we cantilevered part of the deck out three feet from the house, we have a small room under there. It's the perfect place to store bikes or seasonal items, but it was lacking a door or gate to close it up.
This is actually a project from last summer that I didn't get posted. I was hoping to stain the gate, but because I have a long list of items waiting to be stained, I decided to go ahead and post it as it is.

Here is how it looked before

And here is Brian with his carpenter's helper, Danica.

Treated 2x4s were used for the frame.

It didn't take him long to build the frame, and add the hinges.

He used fence boards to match the planter beside the deck.

And there it is....another job done....almost!

A simple slide bolt closer was added.
Unfortunately, this one is a little hard to close, so we may get a larger one.

I'll post another picture when the staining is done....
hopefully this summer!!

Obviously, hospital food doesn't taste like a home food, plus they offer you the food which is good for your health when you are dealing with some diseases.
