Big thanks to my brother @curran_88 my Dad and father in law Mark in helping me complete this beast of a project. Looking forward to watching many sunsets from here. Any thank you @jennaecurran for helping me with the design and motivation. I like building stuff with you. 😘#woodisgood#mybigdeck
The porch is done! And better than before. Picture #2 shows how much I had to remove: rotten joists, deck boards and that nasty 4x4. Picture #3 shows how I reinforced my stringer which is supported by a new 4x4 post. Picture #4 shows how much I got done in 8 hours on Saturday and by Tuesday....finished. Railing complete with solar post cap lights. 🔨🔧 #mybigdeck#frontporch#diy#mybigfatdeck#workingwithwood#woodendecks
Removing three of the boards on our front porch began to reveal a much bigger problem: a lot of rotten wood. Since one 4x4 post is rotten and it holds the joists, 5 which have to be replaced, that hold the deck boards...everything needs to be removed to do this repair job properly. We built this deck solid back in April 2007, but over watering the lawn and garden accelerated the rotting of pressure treated wood.
Stay tuned for the finish product, friends! 🔨🔧
This was finished last week!! I'm so proud of my husband for all his hard work but there would for sure be no deck if it wasn't for uncle Jer Bear! He was here helping jesse every step as well as being the bestest uncle ever! We're so lucky!! #mybigdeck#newdeck#20x20bitches
