Hauling 59 boards up to the roof - click here to see the You Tube video

Hauling 59 boards up to the 4th floor was definitely the hardest part of building the roof deck. While the deck isn't finished - we might have been overly ambitious in thinking we could complete the entire project in 1 day - we got all of the pressure treated lumber and trex boards up to the 4th floor! Thanks for all your help everyone - we couldn't have done it without you!

Prep work for the deck - drawing a level line to show where to attach the structural boards.

Of course, the saw decided not to work today. Reid had cut the cord several months ago and my dad had repaired the cord. Looks like it's going to need another fix. Kristen had to hold ends of the cord together - don't try this at home!

Thanks Alex for helping bolt the deck structure into the brick wall!
