DB has been hard at work on our new and expanded deck. It is really coming along, all four posts in, joists hung, and concrete poured. Since we are going to create a patio under the deck, we are waiting on the drainage system before we can put the deck boards on. We vacillated about whether or not to use wood or the manufactured decking. After lots of research, DB decided that wood decking would be cost efficient and less prone to lawsuits regarding splitting.
Saturday, I helped DB for a couple of hours, it was so hot... 95 degrees with humidity at 90% as well. I do not know how he managed all day, I was exhausted after just a couple of hours.
