Deck Recommendation's -
I scheduled a visit for a Quote by a Contractor whose work I have seen before and was impressed with. (Will be here to look/talk to, in about two weeks.)
I plan on having him do a complete Tear Down/haul away of my old wrap around deck and build me a new one in the Spring.
I plan on using something like Cattle Panels (or similar) in between the 4×4 deck posts. (Something with a slightly smaller mesh size would be good, in case I ever get a smaller dog.) I plan on having two gates. One on the side of the house and one out the front door, So I can just open front or rear door and let Buddy out, in order to have full access to the wrap around deck.
I plan on having the deck uprights/sides a little taller in height, than normal to prohibit Buddy from getting his paws on top and pulling himself up and over.
Any experience/suggestions for a beefy Wire type mesh panel. I've seen this done before, so I know they are out there. A 2-3" mesh size would be ideal. (Covered in green vinyl would also be ideal.) My Contractor may know what these are called. I'm just looking for advice/suggestions before he shows up to fully explain my ideas to him.
I've done Carpentry/Construction before and have built many decks. (Like Allen Griggs.) I'm too old to tackle this project by myself, primarily because 2/3 of the deck is a full one story off the ground in back where my deck is and the ground falls sharply away.
Any advice/input appreciated.
