I recently dis-assembled a sandbox that was in my yard. It was made
up of 8 solid pressure treated 8 x 8 x 8 foot pieces of lumber that
the previous owner had laid down for his kid.
I was thinking of using the wood to make a ground level deck - If I
space these 30 inches apart and lay them flat on the ground as joists,
I could get 12 foot decking and have a pretty simple 12 x 8 deck,
What am I missing here? Do I need posts to keep it from shifting
around? Nothing was holding the sandbox in, and it was solid as a
Dig up the soil, level it, drop fabric to keep the weeks down, lay
down the pressure treated sandbox wood as joists at 30 inch intervals
and hammer in the decking. Done.
Will this work?
