Decking Gardening

Underdeck Drainage
by: CHRIS posted: Monday - March 19, 2018
Hi all,
Thanks in advance for the assistance.  I am going to 
be installing this: 
https://www.familyhandyman.com/decks/building-a-
deck/under-deck-roof/view-all/
for an elevated deck I have out back.  I hired a 
gutter guy to finish the gutter and downspout system.  
I am trying to figure out how to mount a couple 
ceiling fans, which would obviously compromise the 
water seal.  The deck above is completely exposed 
underneath, so I can add however much blocking and 
support I need.  Just a matter of choosing the 
mounting method, pole or surface mount, and then 
figuring out how to waterproof it again after 
mounting.
Thoughts or suggestions?
Much thanks.
Chris
