The start of a wood deck.
Existing deck, proposed deck, and start of piers and stair pads.

Looks like deck work is a major part of your business.

You seem to do a lot of it.

You won't have to work hard to make a better looking deck.

You are right there.
Although in the way was concrete from past mistakes, rotten siding and rim
joist, and the area
is hard to get trucks/material too.
Anyway, what else is new.

Seems to be a thing like roofs, they wear out after a while.
The newer ones don't since we use better pressure treat materials, and also
separate the rim from the house.
Most rot happens there.
Many choose plastic decking too.
I think a wood deck is nicer, if kept clean, oiled, and made with water
issues in mind.
Work is work.
I don't turn down too much.

Hand cut, precise, no fluff on the bottom. Checked with string lines.
each concrete pier is cross hatched for target, and then set with string.
(as usual)
