Ok, a couple pics that are not strictly images of the construction.

This hurts.

This is a sketch I used to try to figure out if 8 ft boards will suffice across the width of the deck.

Turns out, math says it will. Yay!

No pics tonight, you're welcome.

What's making me happy tonight?

I installed the first seventeen deck boards tonight.
I just finished, good night now.

heh, thanks. That's a little reminder from the crash of the wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow was a write-off, I have a new one already. The right hand was repaired and is back in regular service.

As for tonight, I'm still installing deckboards. I'm really, really stoked. I'm having another episode of moving my construction materials out of my work area to install the same materials. It's raining now, but not cold, so I'm working working working. The more deck boards I install the fewer I have to keep moving around. And the next batch will have clean dry DECK to rest on while I install them one by one in the uncovered part of the deck.

I'm only here because I came in to plug in some rechargable electronics I use out on the deck for entertainment while I work.

Anyhow, more pics later, after the boards are installed!!

Well Gollum, I'll tell ya.

I got eleven full length boards installed and the next board required some cutting. Specifically, I had to notch it to fit in under a post. I *did* notch it, but not quite enough. I needed to enlarge the notch, but by that time I was out of patience, energy, daylight, and gumption.

Half a board it is.


The following night only ten and a half boards, then Friday night, none.. I'd burned my candle all the way down. Saturday was a daylight working day but lots of rain, so I got stuff done, but minimal boards installed. I did buy another fifty or so.

Those all had to be unloaded and trimmed to length and stacked.

Today's work is measured in half decks.

I have installed boards across half the deck.

Pics later.

Half-a-board it is, then!
