    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.

    The timber for the stairs arrived before I got the quote sorted for the roof. I have made the stairs shown in the picture.

    If you are cringing please don't tell me about it and let me find out in the future (unless of course there is a serious safety risk.

    My only issue now is how do I get the wiring from the roof into the house? Has anyone had experience with this and a flyover roof?

    Perhaps the easiest way is to install a socket in the ceiling and run a 3 core extension lead to a switched power point inside the house.

    You will need a sparkie (unless you are one) if you want to integrate the wiring in the ceiling into the house wiring.
    In that case, you would want to install a separate circuit from the power box.

    Thanks Ian. I don't think I explained it properly. The new roof on the deck is held above the existing roof by beams so there is a gap of about 200mm between each of the roofs? and I need to get the new wiring from the new roof height into the houses roof cavity to join up with existing services. It's the getting it into the roof in such a way that every thing is sealed and safe from the elements that I am not sure how that would work. I am not an electrician but would like to get everything in place so that all the electrician would have to do is connect and test.
    I hope that makes things clearer.

    It is a very simple job for an electrician to bring the power down next to one of your support posts and enter the roof either down at the gutter line or through a decktight on the roof face. A very common issue that is faced when fitting rooftop HWU, solar panels etc

    As said, use the appropriate size decktite for the conduit

    Sorry didn't want to do the wrong thing by the forums. Just wanted information to allow me to save money by doing as much as I could before getting an electrician in.
