just for fun

Deck Building Day 8

So the final day for the main part of the deck. I wandered over to Totem to buy one last deck board, and had it purchased and installed in no time:

Deck Building Day 7

So today was a pretty monotonous day. There's not a lot of excitment in laying deckboards so here's some pictures of the kids doing all the hard work for me :)

Deck Building Day 6

So I had high hopes that I could get the deck finished today, and as you can see I'm making good quick progress laying out the deckboards. Was getting a little out of align at one point, but managed to correct it and the boards seem to be laying nice and square. The boards have been pretty maliable so it's been pretty easy to straighten out any crooked ones so far.

Deck Building Day 5

So since we had a birthday party to go to this morning I didn't get started untill pretty late in the day. For the most part I got the edge deck boards on and angles cut perfectly. I had lots of help from the kids today, which while fun, means I didn't get nearly much done as I had hoped.

 

Deck Building Day 4

calgary stampeders

So Since Thursday ended up with no time to work on the deck since we went over to some friends in the afternoon and the Stamps had their opening game last night, I had to wait untill today to finish off the base of the deck.

I had big hopes today, It felt like I could get pretty close to finishing the deck off.

 

Deck Building Day 3

Well things are really coming along now!

Only had a half day to work on the deck today since I had an appointment downtown, but made good progress none the less. First of all I finished of the corner arc of our deck, check out how well it all fits together!

Deck Building Day 2

So finally I get to finish day two of the deck. Truthfully the day went pretty good.

Here in the first image I have the frame and beams laid out and checking that everything is level and square and guess what take a look at the level! everything was perfectly level and square! I surprised myself.

Building My Deck

So on a change of pace from programming, I've decided to put together a couple of articles on the trials and tribulations of building my deck on my own.

The Perfect Manhattan

So to take a break from coding.
