Default Deck rebuild... cost??? (example given)

First post- I would like to have something 99% similar to the below built. I dont have a clue what my cost will be for a contractor to do this work - and if I am way off I dont want to waste any time getting a quote.



I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong forum, but would it be possible to have this done for ~$5000?

Thanks

Default well

That deck around here is 25,000.
A 5000 catagory is usually a 14 to 16 foot basic straight out deck.
Sorry, and
Welcome

$25,000 in Connecticut?? WOW! The price would probably be less than that in GA, but you may have to do much of it yourself in order to keep it around $5K. It is such a beautiful deck...

You could not even buy the materials to match that one for $5,000.

Anyone live near him that loves working for fun? lol. Man if I was rich I'd spend time traveling the country and paying parts of peoples home improvement projects if I got to help with construction and design. ^.^ Oh, and welcome!

I knew 5k was in the pretty low range, but I did not know that it was that low. Looks like that new deck would cost significantly more than my kitchen renovation - and we did not go cheap on that.

I enjoy doing that type of project by myself, but its really an issue of time. Looks like I dont have much of a choice. I will probably be back on here to ask some questions about how to proceed with a DIY solution one I recover from tax season.
