DIY 20×20 Backyard Pavilion
From Brian Griffin,
My wife and i did everything accept the concrete. It took us about 6 weeks to complete as you see it. Neither of us have a lot of building experience. I had most of the tools. Total cost as it set in pics was around 12K. Just the structure no concrete or extras around 4K.
I have a question, I have an existing concrete slab that I’m thinking about put a picnic shelter house on. What are my options for securing the post (6×6)? Can this be done without cutting up the concrete to set the post? Thanks.
First of all, you need to read the local building codes. Secondly, my point of view is that you need to set the posts 3′ in concrete.
