Where are you located? Doe it snow there? Are you planning on building the deck right up to the door? I built mine down a few inches from my slider just for snow etc.

Are you attaching it to the house?
The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there."

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.” “They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”
Extra Credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3"
not "I'm looking for a M3".

This is in Northern Virginia.

The deck will be freestanding (not attached to the house, no ledger board). Deck will be even with the top of a 3 inch concrete step where a french door is located, and will go right up to it (maybe 1/2" gap). Basically a normal concrete pad (not attached to the foundation or anything) with some 2x4's as sleepers over it, then decking. Doing a lot of reading, this should work fine (and Timbertech claims 1.5" is enough clearance underneath for ventilation). The only issue could be the fact that the slab is cracked (so parts could sink further), and stuff getting caught underneath.

The snow is a good point. The door/edge of the deck will be under the eaves of the house, but obviously snow could still blow up there.

Will try to take some "before" pics later. The whole yard is torn up (we took out all the plants / bushes / grass) in preparation for new landscaping in the spring (this is only part of that plan).
