About 6 weeks ago Carolyn called me about building a deck. I had a wait time and the price of lumber was going sky high so we bought the lumber right away and left it in piles until I was able to get to it.
I spent a week building. First I replaced the old stairs. I made them almost exactly the same except I added some posts for a railing.
Next I started on the deck. I worked my way away from the house in sections so that my customers could still access the backyward without climbing over framing. It is 12 feet wide by 25 feet long.
Lastly I added railings and steps.
