Deck Saga - Part 4

Well, they have the concrete poured (at least halfway into the holes so far) and the real posts up, so I guess the first inspector came and approved.

The unfinished deck so far? Looks NIIIICE...

The previous deck had posts made of 3 pieces of 2x4's strapped together (I guess to prevent warping of cheap lumber). The new posts are one solid beam of pressure treated lumber. Rock solid. The deck is also up and screwed in so one can walk on it. Since takayla was home today, she got to see the workers walk around on it, and said there was no give at all.

I didn't walk on it because there are no railings (or stairs) yet, and I only saw bits of it in the dark. But this is shaping up nicely. The work site is a mess, but that's to be expected.

The weather is so great; I hope it stays this great when the deck is finished so I can enjoy it.
