So my wife decided that we needed a new deck…which turned into a new screened porch. It took me a month to complete. Other than some help from neighbors to lift the header and ledger boards, I did all the work myself. (the header and ledger boards are stacked 2×10s with 1/2 inch ply in the middle to make them a true 4 inch thickness)
The ENTIRE deck is constructed with exterior torx bit screws and galvanized bolts/nuts. The ONLY nails in the project are in the shingles.
I’m in the process of planing the old deck boards to cut a tongue and groove in them to make the ceiling. I’m partially finished with it, but don’t want to post photos of it until complete. I have about another 100 hours to complete.
Here are some photos of before, during, and after. Thanks for stopping by.
