Making a deck, a two year project as the window to build is short so here e
we go

and the oncoming stone wall containing three waterfalls

just prior i played where the floor to ceiling distance was less then my shoe to head distance, but it turned out ok

before and semi finished after shots

panels hung on french cleats

moving right along, had to take a pigs ear and turn it into a silk hat in the temperate rain forests of mud and not knowing the building or at least 75% of it was rotten turning it into a challenge I wish I could have passed on

Oh well, mission accomplished

before and after

new footing piers and big o

up cycled all the interior exterior cedar walls and siding to the interior

added a veranda using back yard timbers

took all the crap that was severely weather warn, ripped it into 3’ and 1 1/2” strips and nailed all the shorts to plywood sheeted walls, then pounded the paint to it

I was ok with it,

and took what was still good from the rotten wood flooring, reconstituted it into wainswalls

I like the deck siting area.

I noticed outlets near each corner, are those for lights?
