Yeh, I had a some hiccups when I first started and I had to swap out one kind of hidden fasteners for a different kind; but we’re starting to move along now. It’s interesting how my learning curve is starting to grow as I move along and from the trial and error thingee. I also forgot how hot the deck gets in the midday summer sun and it reminded me why I got a deck awning. Seven more board and I can get that back up to cut back on that scorching sun.
That heat out there tore me up. I must have drank a gallon of water and I was still slightly dehydrated. I had to wonder just what possessed me to once again do a project like this in the middle of a central Minnesota summer. And yeh, I have another big outdoor project waiting in the wings. It’s all gonna look awesome when it’s all done. That is if I don’t die first.
