Beautiful setup you have!
I have some questions regarding your pier since I've been thinking of some creative ideas myself. Your tree stump seems to be sitting on/anchored to the deck, is that correct? If yes, how are you securing it?
I have a need for a permanent pier in the backyard but not sure how to go about it. One option is to have a concrete one, one to use a metal pipe of sort going deep in the ground, third something like yours, a wood stump of sort but gong deep in the ground, and lastly (least favorite) using a tripod/legged pier that sits at the ground level. Last option is not ideal since that makes it a temp. solution. Anyway, your thoughts welcome on this matter since I am at a loss figuring it (pier) out. Regards
Note; My pier questions are regarding a Mach2/StarFire kind of setup; and not the one sown above.
