Building a deck

Looks like a perfect place for a spiral staircase and a fireman's pole. Or a rope ladder.

Is this a job you were hired to do?

Yes. Third floor is an 800+sq ft apartment with a narrow stairway inside that appliances won't fit through. Material just dropped, starting later this week after finishing some other stuff.

I would disagree.

Kentucky bluegrass loves the shade. The grass under my front deck is lush and happy and green all summer. Even in the heat of August.

Looking good. I'm not a big fan of the built ins tho.

Is there a plan of some sort for the rim joist that runs long on both sides?

Made a little progress the end of last week, got all the stringers cut today.

Why are the sonotubes all cattywampus and slandicular?

The James River drops at a rate of one inch per mile. You can see the curvature of the earth from the top of your car. Yep - it's flat.
I could never live somewhere like that. I live in the central valley, but at least I can still see mountains on a clear day.

Understandable. I've always liked the look and function of a built in bench on a deck. Don't have to haul out extra chairs when we've got company that way.

Is there a plan of some sort for the rim joist that runs long on both sides?
Yes. I'll router off the rim joist so the edge is nice and flush but that'll have to wait until I purchase a 2" edging bit for my router.

Is that cedartone or real cedar? Almost looks to straight to be treated lumber.

Yeah, why let your guests sit in soft, comfortable chairs when they can sit on a hard, flat bench?

Yes, cedartone.

My wife would have me attaching a planter of some sort to the rim if she saw that.

Kids. Lots of kids. Soft, comfortable chairs don't build character like a hard, flat bench.
