Sooo close!

Phew! Today was long! We started at 9:00a.m. and stopped at 8:20p.m.. This morning we finished off the “corner” joists and one of the funny end beams. They went so smoothly! We were very optimistic for the day and had hoped we could get the OSB on the deck by the end of the day. We had some friends show up for a couple hours. They helped start putting in the closed cell foam boards. When they left, Pete and I took over and realized that we were short 24 sheets! We had paid for 52 but they guy only loaded 28 sheets. We didn’t realize until today! Thankfully our local hardware store fixed the issue and we were able to pick up the rest of the sheets with no issues.

Thursday morning. Tricky end beam.

We finally got back to the property by 4:30p.m. and got to work on the foam insulation. It all went together fairly quickly. We were happy with the results. Still need to finish cutting the circle into it. But that will be for another day. It’s such an important part of this deck build. So, it would be best to save that cut for a fresh day on the job.

We are so close to getting the main structure up! If the weather cooperates… maybe one more week??? Stay tuned!
