deck progress, striving for 1/16" measurements

this time (as opposed to the old deck);

  • the ledger is flashed and lagged into every [house] joist, hangars were used

  • solid (glue lam?) 30'-ish beam

  • deck joists hurricane strapp-ed to the beam

  • upped the posts from 4x4 to 6x6, 6'-ish on center, off the concrete, with brackets to secure to the posts

  • went with messmer's natural to stain the doug fir


still have to head off and install the stairs, we have about 600sqft of IPE waiting ...

don't mind the big ugly house or the mess in the work area
