Deck Party, Part 3

So after Mim went home Sunday afternoon (May 9) Scott and I decided we would work on the deck after work during the week. However, sometime on Sunday Scott started to feel sick, so for the next two days he was dying at home in bed. I didn't get as sick as he did so I still went to work, but I went home early one afternoon to get some rest. So, to make a long story short, we didn't work on it at all until Thursday after work. Since on Sunday we had gotten the frame totally rebuilt Scott just had to plumb and nail in the joists.

Next up was doing the last part of the framing, which was the staircase:

Scott had a really fun time getting these level (that was dripping with sarcasm, by the way).

We are so glad we bought this miter saw, because it made cutting through the composite beams so fast and easy!

So Scott started getting boards placed on the staircase. It's not finished because we need to trim the sides of the boards and add fascia to the sides and the vertical spaces between the individual steps.

Scott got all the boards on the stairs screwed on and we took the ceremonial first steps up the staircase, but we didn't get a picture of that because I forgot.

So that's the end of Part 3.

Stay tuned for more madness.

I know! I just can't wait until it's finished and I can relax on it!
