Deck project done

With the railings on the Hodan Shades of Silver deck is ready for use. Good project for a good cause.

Finished the small garage roof as well. Now it is on to the other half of the main house and that should wrap up projects around the house for this year.

Covered Bridge approach work

Drove by the South Wayne Community bridge project this week and happy to report that they are moving long on finishing up the approaches to the bridge we built in summer of 2011. Two years in the making but looks like they are doing an excellent job. This bridge will connect the local school (in the background) to the community park for a nice walking trail and access to the park. Should be a good tourist attraction also.

Made some progress on the steel roofing project this past week while waiting for the Hodan deck railing to arrive. It took some time and work to get it all stripped and leveled up. I was surprised to see just how much sag there was in this old roof and shimming I had to do to get it flat.

With a little help from my friends...

Like the song goes, "With a little help from my friends", I am closing in on the final steps to finish the Hodan deck project. Four weeks since the 6x6 posts went in. Today went very well and the deck material has been applied.

Post sleeves on and the deck is clear ready for the railings and a new learning experience.

This turned out to be one massive structure but will hold up under any "party load" the clients want put on it.

Will be a nice addition to the Hodan Center when the railings are put on sometime in the next week or two.
