The Maple Creek deck is making steady progress
The action continues with the construction of the cantilevered deck: the floor joists have been installed and the decking boards are next. As the railings are fabricated the exterior modifications will be completed and siding installed. The scaffolding will remain up until the very end of this project as the underside will be some 30 feet above grade… difficult to reach with a paintbrush!
Boards prop up the steel C-channel beams to give them the appearance of the original wood deck framing. The board is attached from behind to conceal the fasteners.
The deck joists are doubled to replicate the original design and match the small balcony and entry walk.
The steel diagonal strut connects to the beam supporting the deck joists.
