    Is there a TV out there for watching Football?  If so - it's perfect!!

    @thatgrimguy, do you by chance have the plans for that deck? My wife and I are in love with it and I'd love to get a better idea how I could duplicate it and modify it to my space.
    No, it was built from my head. But it's super simple. it's not attached to the house in anyway. It's fully free-standing 20' x 30' Structure. The supports are 12 treated 6x6 posts buried about 3.5 ft in the ground with 240lbs of concrete per hole (put rocks at the bottom so water doesn't pool, then fill the sides with concrete. 10' spacing between each one. Then sandwich with treated 2x6 and carriage bolt together.  From there it's just a subfloor and then the deck boards.  The hardest part was the corner steps. They were torture without plans.

    My friends built the tables and benches. Notched everything out like a big jigsaw puzzle. It's beyond stout.  If you have any specific questions I would love to help

    I have a temporary solution that is basically a TV cart. But we are going to take in the old back porch and turn part of it into a bar that opens out to the deck and it will house the TV, Kegerator, drink fridge, etc.

    Thanks. I copied your pics and have been studying them. I swear it's exactly what I've been dreaming to build. Thanks again for the insight.

    Saw your post about your deck and tracked this thread down. No clue how I missed this.

    Incredible space you have for yourself there! I would never leave home with a backyard like that!

    I told y'all it was unbelievable. The pics don't do it justice.

    So, I already commented one time, and I will again, with the new additions.  What a crib man.  What a crib.
