Extreme Deck Building – Part 7

Sorry, was too tired to download pictures last night but we’ll get some up tonight. However, Jeremy and I were able to get all of the rafters up top and secured and have most of the hurricane straps attached. We also rented a floor sander and sanded the entire deck and step under the glow of our new portable work lights, then used my small orbital sander to get the small spots. Have a little more touch up sanding to do, a few more hurricane straps to secure, and then we’re priming the entire deck tonight and painting it tomorrow, just in time for the rehearsal dinner on Friday. *WHEW*
As a side note, I got no sleep Sunday night as I was thinking about this deck and all that was left to do in the final week. I’m so ready to be done with this and actually spend time with my family again…
