Deck Building
25 May 2011

The deck is complete! Well, almost. Initially we had thought we wouldn't do any railings since it's below 24", but Julene thinks that railings are needed. And the stairs. But let's not let the detract from the major project of the weekend. The cement pyles were done last Saturday and the rest was done yesterday. The hardest part was getting everything framed up square and level. The beam took a bit of work - I had to chisel away the top of the one pyle since the beam was going to be resting right on it. Once everything was framed up, the rest was easy.

looks pretty slick! I'd leave the rails off too though...

we decided we need rails mostly to keep stuff from blowing off
