Restart the Porch Decking Installation

Day #75

July 5, 2019 – This morning when I awoke, the significance of the comment Troy made yesterday evening came bursting through. I needed to restart the porch decking installation from the outside edge otherwise, the mitered corner of the picture frame would not work. It was all clear, finally! This is what I did.

Restarting the deck installation allowed the picture frame pieces to meet at a 45° miter.

While I worked on the porch addition the rest of the family was busy filling the dumpster. Over the years we have accumulated literally tons of junk.

The Old Shed is filled with a bunch of nonsense and has needed a good cleaning for quite some time. (For those following along, at the Cot-Taj-Mahal we have a New Shed and an Old Shed.) Welp now it’s all cleaned out!

At some point in the day the fire ring was rebuilt. It’s now a two story fire ring… cee.

It was a very hot and humid day at the Cot-Taj-Mahal. Two very rare “McVeytown Viper’s” somehow made it thru and onto the snake screening to sun themselves. After shoeing them back under the cottage I knocked off for the day. I managed to get the restarted deck section mostly complete. Tomorrow I will move the first four deck pieces that I started yesterday forward to finish the section.
