The weather today was a complete contrast, in fact is was pretty hot and what with the rain yesterday very humid.
More progress was made although not as much as Michael would have hoped by this stage, he's coming back tomorrow, Sunday, to at least get one sides decking timber on. It is such a big deck and it's going to take a long time to get done, especially as Michael is back to work on Monday. His plans for a couple of days rest before Monday have flown out of the window. Joe has next week off work luckily and so he can get on with screwing on coach screws, hammering Z nails and cutting noggins for in between the joists. Enough chatter, here are today's photos......
Just look at that Sky!
The big corner taken from the lounge window
Taken from a bedroom window
Taken from the border by the front door
View of the corner from below
Taken from the corner at deck level
Just a couple of joist brackets and coach screws in the stringer boards against the house
......plenty more of those to go.
More coach screws on the outer edge of the deck, there will be two holding the boards to every joist, then because the boards are two thick one coach screw goeas through the middle of those to hold the boards together
The corner from underneath again, taken at the end of the days work
From the lounge window again
From the border...
And finally: In the garden today
Globe artichoke flower
Silk tree flowers
