Summer project. Warning lots of pics.

For the month of August and part of Sept we have been tearing down our ugly old rotten deck and building a new one. All that is left is the skirting under the deck but we are waiting until spring as the ground will likely shift and settle and we will need to re-level in the spring. That is easier to do with no skirting. It's all cedar.

The old deck.


The ground where the second level will be.


Back to the basics. I had a heck of a time balancing across the joists. LOL


Mound of cedar for the new deck. Did it smell great!


Beginning of the new upper level


Before the linseed oil


After the linseed oil



The framing of the lower deck.


Lower deck


Finally stairs between the two levels. Now I can quit climbing up and down.


Finished without the skirting.





And my killer BBQ!

Awesome deck! I really like how it looks with the linseed oil. It gives it a "natural look" which I like better than the stained with "solid colors" effect. So when's the cookout? : )

That's awesome! Looks like Sparky has some competition with your deck (he's building one too).

That is one awesome looking deck! I know the next people that move into my house are going to hate me, since I used screws on my deck!
