roadhog96 Posted September 29, 2014 Report Share Posted September 29, 2014 Couldn't have done this project without the help of my DeWalt tools. The impact driver was probably without a doubt the most time saving tool with all the screws used on the brackets, decking and framing construction. All that's left are the white plastic covered composite railings and post covers. I'll have to do that next year because winter is approaching fast, leaves are already changing color and I have a ton of yard work to do before it gets cold. I hate winter, seasons way to long and I have so many things outside I'd like to do. Should have had this done by now but had a few set backs over the last year or so. A blood clot followed by cataract surgery put a hold on things but all is good now. The worst part of this whole project was digging for the footings, rocks everywhere. Some to big to lift out of the hole so I moved them out of the way and left them buried. No big deal I've done this plenty of times in the past only I was a lot younger then, really feel it now after a long day of hard work. No offense to any contractors but I've always said, I'd rather spend the money on tools to do a job, do it myself because I will do it right and then have the tools for another job later on. Besides I enjoy doing it and I have everyday now that I'm retired, sure feels good having no stress. What do you guys think, does it look deck worthy or not? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
