Discovered an archive of photos from the South London new build we did back in 2005-2006. Just show some of the external works, fitting of decking and steps:

This was a on site construction of balcony and steps out of wood, with paved barbecue area. This barbecue area is small so as to increase the grassed area. Note how the step railings are not finished when the pave barbecue area is built. Also the lawn is not laid yet. That goes in last.

The following images are from a small area of decking that runs from a glass door out to a small narrow garden. This will be shown in subsequent blogs.
