Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


I like your scribing block. This is the detail work that separates the Pro from the weekend warrior. Great looking deck!

Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


Notice the small piece in the corner has no visible fasteners? We fastened it to the side of the longer piece next to it with aggressive threaded screws. It's the fine details that separate us from the competition.

A simple turning of the screws pulls the piece in and out to get the gap perfect.

Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


This is great thanks. The project itself is incredible and the execution of it is a masterpiece! All great tools too. Thatís a really nice tool belt. And those knee pads are great, what kind are they.

I have been thinking of a new patio...maybe it should be a deck, they just look so much better than stepping down from the backdoor to a patio.

Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


So using these new fasteners they tend to suck the boards down more. So I needed to fine tune my ladder blocks a little.

Whoever owns that house has a really sweet view. Also must be nice to be able to do outside work. We're expecting a snow storm starting in the next couple of hours through the weekend.

The ocean is about 25 miles as a crow flys, on a clear day we can see ships. Also we can see Catalina Island which is about 50 miles away.

Nice this home is about 5 minutes from my house too.

Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


We had 4 days of rain! Set us back a little. Although tomorrow were working, which is rare on a Saturday. Supposed to be 76 degrees. Finally back to normal.
