Deck progress!!!


The supports for the deck... attached to the ledger board



Check out these massive screws/nails ( not sure exactly what they are) but they are huge! That's my shoe and I am a size 8...

Despite the heat.. it was close to 90's and sunny and humid and HOT. Mike worked from 8 am- 8 pm with the help of Anthony and Paul. All the support beams are in and its almost time to start laying down the actual cedar decking. Yesterday wasn't without its usual glitches though. Lowes was supposed to deliver a bunch of stuff at 7 am... by 9 when they weren't here I called and they said we were marked for Monday for some reason! Mike was obviously frustrated as he needed some of the parts on the delivery and had to stop working and run to the store to pick up a few things. Lowes finally delivered the stuff at noon.... all in all there were 4 trips made to Lowes/ Home Depot within the course of the day.. ( plus the delivery), which is no record for those of you that know us well. I think the record is 6 0r 8 trips in one day.
