    So I am nearly finished putting the decking on before I am going to give it a sanding and wash before oiling. So I will need to put a hand rail in. I was thinking of just buying some wider decking boards as over the shorter leveled posts joint to the longer posts with a metal L bracket on each post the board touches. The posts are 100mm x 100mm. Has anyone seen this been done before and see any reason why it would not work as a handrail? I had a look at what bunnings have to offer and they don't do anything in terms of spotted gum so I thought this would work best.
    I have also posted a photo after it has just rained to show how nice it looks (or at least I think so) before oiling or sanding.20191012_064319.jpg

    Hi, so I am looking at the roof of the deck now while I wait for the stair and balustrade timber. I have managed to get quotes for insulated versiclad panelling down to about $7000 (compared to Stratco $14000) including the beams and roof extenda mounts for the flyover on the house side. My only question is has anyone had any experience with using roof extenda brackets to have a flyover roof above the corner points of a house? I have to measure the distance but hopefully having an overhang of 1.2m of a 150mm x 50mm steel beam will be enough to go past the corner and be in line with the side of the house guttering. Otherwsie I may need the roof to be in line with the wall.

    Any knowledge on this would be appreciated.
