Thanks to all the help from our friends and family,
we are making progress on the deck!
|Brad digging holes for footings.|
|That was hard work but we didn't get deep enough, so we had to rent the power auger!|
|Footing holes approved by inspector...next step, filling forms with concrete!|
|On Saturday we had a big crew to help fill in around the footings, get the ledger on the house and put up the beams.|
|Putting the beams together.|
|Beams are in place!|
|Now, we start on the joists.|
|Tryg wants to get in on the action! He likes to measure.|
|Joists are in and now we added the end joist.|
So, it turns out there are a lot of steps involved in creating a deck.
We still have some work ahead of us,
but we can actually see the deck platform now!
