Breaking News

The electrician has just left the premises. He and I had a very thorough walkthrough of the site and a detailed plan to get power to the location of the hot tub was developed. A quote for this plan will be forthcoming this week.

If you're not going to put pictures up, you need 1000 words when you bump it.

I'm back. *This time* I have the pics to prove it.


When we left our hero, he was breakin' rocks in the hot sun, makin' little ones out of big ones. No, that's not right. He was haulin' rocks in the cool pre-dawn light, makin' home ones out of store ones. Yeah, that's better.

I lined up before they were open (technically I'm in front of the BIGger truck to my left here). When they open the gate, I drive onto the scale in my little truck. I get weighed unloaded (click!), get loaded (ooooof!), get weighed again (pay the man!).

Couldn't you have found prettier stone? Some cool bold colors, no pastels. Oh, and sparkly bits, quartz, gold flakes?

As you can see (GVWR), I was pushing it. Spoiler alert, truck lived.

See how it fills in under the bottom edges of the frame?

The last shot shows a couple deckboards (and a lot more gravel) laid in place as gangplanks, also to give me a visual frame of reference how the deck boards will look when I install them.

Here we see a little fix I had to engineer. The nailing surface for most of these boards has included an edge of one of the frame members that would align under the ends of the deck boards. But not in this corner. This is where the hot tub will live, so we'll never see this again once its installed. But I didn't want to have a section of deckboards that didn't have their ends securely fastened to the frame.

So, here are my additional boards, laid in place across the blocking in this section of the frame.

They obviously sit up too high, so I cut some giant dadoes to set the nailing surface flush with the rest of the frame. I measured them in place and made a number of relief cuts to the proper depth with the circular saw, then knocked out the pieces with a hammer and a chisel.

In the last picture you can see the new boards fitted, flush with the rest of the frame.
