Actually, the final deck posts were set almost 2 weeks ago. Thanks to a week long work trip to Arizona I was a little late on getting this post out.
I still have a little work to do on the garage siding after I found the damage earlier, but things are moving along. The next step will be setting 12 2x6x12 pressure treated boards that the deck joists will in turn hang from. Ironically enough, my biggest challenge right now is how to get those 12 2x6x12 boards home, my Toyota Tacoma only has a 5′ bed. 🙂
