I have done enough DIY projects, as well as watching enough HGTV to know that every project will have a setback or two along the way, and my deck build project is no exception.
As I was setting the posts along the back wall of my garage, you can see the first one in the foreground of this image, I discovered that the siding has been damaged over the years. The damage came from what I suspect was years of water hitting the ground and then bouncing up on the siding.
The good news is which it is damaged, it isn’t it terrible shape and I will be able to simply repair it, but I will need to take care of that before I build all the joists for the deck. In the meantime, I will have the final posts set tomorrow and will then take care of the siding.
