Hi everyone, 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 http://imageshack.us/photo/my-...s/818/dsc0180wn.jpg/ 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!!
