sadly the deck was built for the outdoor kitchen (no more hotdogs rolling off the grill) and not dancing.
sure wolv, i'll build you an identical structure. they ain't cheap though...
the framing alone (pond board from the mill) weighed in at almost 5000 lbs. 24 foot long 2x12's aren't light! it is awful nice to have 700 sq ft of covered WARM space when it starts raining, and not have to go indoors!
forgot to mention, this was built with basically 390w of solar. the wind turbine wassn't really helping until almost evening, and we were wrapping things up by then anyways. the solar easily competed with 13 hour days running a pancake air compressor with framing nailer, circ saw, chop saw, ect. i thought for sure i'd have to fire up my little generac with the chinese charger to keep the bank up, but it wasn't an issue.
if the wind turbine hadn't kicked in during the evenings, i probably would have fired up the genset for evening comforts.
next project is to build a mini deck ON TOP of the roof. no, i'm not kidding...
