I'm new to these forums, and am hoping that you guys can help me out with some stuff for our newly purchased house.
We have a small half-hexagon bump out to our kitchen at the back of the house. Previously there was a walk-out deck, but we had to rip it up as it was falling apart.
I have 2 questions that I'm hoping for help with:
For reference I have uploaded a picture
1) As you can see there is now a bunch of exposed wood where there use to be deck (under and above the door), as well as the diagonal walls have a bunch of rotten wood near the bottom, where it met the deck (there was no flashing). What should I use to cover this up, fix it? I've been recommended using a pressure-treated plywood, but will that do the trick? are there other suggestions?
2) For aesthetic purposes I think I want to close this piece off to the ground (so that it doesn't look like it's floating. How would I go about doing that?
Thanks for any help/suggestions!!
