Deck Rebuilding (Construction: Part I)

Saturday was a nice hot day for working on the deck. Michael came over and my Dad was there … so we fixed the supports, cut boards and nailed ’em into place. It took most of the day as we were taking some liberal rest breaks in the shade on my Mimosa tree.

All that’s left now is to put up new railing in the corner and the building will be done!

Here some pictures just to bore you …

Then the boards for the floor …

It was crafty of Michael to work in the shade while Dad baked in the sun and heat.

Michael hammers and nails.

And here’s me putting the last nail of the day in.

    Great job and all in one day!! I’m impressed. Looks good as new and will hopefully see its first (non-sparklered) party soon.

    You are so damn handy!!!! I know there were tools with sharp edges and you didn’t even cut yourself.

  3. I was using the miter saw like crazy. I like a little danger in my work. Michael was the one who was a weenie and wouldn’t touch it.

    Damn right! I’ve seen too many fingers and thumbs fall victim to those monsters!

    I just removed “Sweeney Todd” from my netflix queue last night. What does that tell you about me?
