Framing continues

6 Sep

We continued blocking the deck yesterday, which is a tedious task. We’re just about done with that, save for if we need to put an extra block here and there for rogue boards. Our next task was to cut all the joists to length. They were left long and then we measured to square them all to the exterior wall of the kitchen. We then took a sliding square and marked the cuts and then we took the circular saw and cut the ends of all 27 joists.

The next step will be to attach the rim joist to the end of all the joists, which will tie all the ends together to lock them all square and a fixed distance apart.
