How's the deck coming along?


It’s been a slow and arduous process to build the deck. My only chance to do any work on it has been limited to the weekends. Of course, it rains on the weekends. Between the raindrops, I managed to get a few boards down along with some rail and bench posts. Erika has been staining the underside of the decking before their installed. That might be a bit of overkill, but we want the deck to last a while. The railing and bench posts are recycled wood. The railing posts range in diameter from 4” to 5.5”. The lack of uniformity should look okay as I’m aiming for a rustic look. Erika has done a good job at removing the residual bark from the bench post logs. I know they have tools specifically designed for that kind of work, but she’s using just a razor blade. It’s time consuming, but fun? I guess you’d have to ask her. Expected date of completion...maybe October?   George
