    I Decided To Build A Deck

    We moved in last year and thought the 2 doors along with 2 sets of steps were not very useful. Step 1 tear down those steps. Since they were poorly constructed this took about 5 minutes.

    Started the build a week after the Superbowl.

    My better half told me she wanted the decking on the diagonal.

    That's my trusty assistant in the background.



    Of course we needed rails.

    Very nice job. Hard work has paid off yet again.

    yeah, the 45 adds a nice touch.

    Indeed! That hot tub is going to be great. We love ours.

    Read this for maintaining it, I've used this process for a few years and it works great.
    How do I use Chlorine in my Spa (or pool)?

    The finishing touches. Moved the hot tub toward the center.


    Adding shade sail.


    Trimming excess post.


    The final product.

    Wow, what a transformation. Great job! I wish I was this handy. I start it then never finish it because no matter how many times I watch a youtube video I fail. All I'm good for is working on cars - haha

    Thanks. The hardest part for me was the stringers. I watched several youtubes and read several "how to's" before I made a single cut.

    Thanks Kim. The wife took so many pictures I didn't even know about this one until I looked at her FB album.
