DIY-planning at the very beginning on the alignment to the rear home veranda was mistakenly missed instead aligned to the side foot path incorrectly. This caused incline gap on back concrete veranda, however as the REYNARD WOOD multi-purpose-plank, can be easily cut, this issue was resolved.
DYI–group of mate’s tradie team, utilised footing sleeves to create concrete piers, then simply aligned and screwed down REYNARD WOOD multi purpose planks as beams @ 1m span. Then the top decking could be layer with same planks, with all edging cut for brick pattern look.
