Thumbs up Deck project.

Well I use to build deck's all the time and really enjoyed it, but now that I'm 60 its not as fun as it once was and the soreness stay's with you a lot longer, but I finished it today and think I still got it for a old man, enjoy.

God Bless

Great job and it looks awesome. At age 60 it will last you forever. I am in the process of replacing top boards on my 25 year old deck...16x96. That is no fun for a guy at 55.

At 67, I said I wasn't going to build any more buildings after the first of the year. I just finished my 5th one. It takes longer to get over it for sure.

I notice the bushes are trimmed back? Is that to make you deck look bigger? No you allow animals on your deck? How many people can you get on your deck at any one time?

That's nice work.

We just moved into our new place and we've decided to put a covered deck on the front and a fairly wide deck out back.

I was originally going to cut cedar on my sawmill and use that, but dang its a lot of work to harvest the trees, limb the trees and dispose of the branches, then load and haul the logs in, mill the logs and let em dry to some extent... THEN go through building the deck.

I'm tired just thinking about it!

Well...................... old man.......................where's the top??!! When you're old (like me too), you need shade and if your'e sittin' out there and it's starting to rain, it takes longer to get up and get in the house! You need a top on that thing man!!

Oh, it DOES look good.......................... for an old geezer!

Nicely done. Make sure you get a good sealer/wood treatment on it so it will last a long time. Today's treated lumber doesn't compare in longevity to that of 20 years ago.

Very nice.

I agree on the age and not being as easy as it use to be. I did the same thing for about 11 years until I sold the business to my ex partner. Here is one of the hardest we had to build!
