Another instalment of the Epic DIY Deck Project series. The last of the joists were secured in place with joist hangers and hurricane ties. Then it was time to dig out the 2″ x 6″ x 16′, 18′ and 20′ cedar boards. A big bonus for the weekend, I hired my 10 year son as a worker. He was a huge help in carrying lumber, air nailing and using the impact drill. (All my kids are trained on power tools) All I had to do was keep him busy, fed and an occasional soda at coffee break.
Hope this series has been interesting and helpful for other people who plan on building a deck by themselves.
Thanks for watching!
