|Jeff and John had installed this much siding by the time I arrived at about 8:00.|
|John is nailing the window in place as Jeff makes sure it is level.|
|This is the new east wall of the porch from the inside.|
The bathroom will not be used in winter, so we intend to leave the interior "rustic."
Our treads and the deck surface is constructed with composite material. The risers were built of cedar planks so we can paint them white to match the house siding. The decking and treads were installed with hidden fasteners, but the outer edges needed to be screwed in place. Very small stainless steel screws to make them less visible.
|Bill and John are making sure the posts for the railing are plumb.|
|Cedar risers are being nailed in place.|
|Jeff and Bill are fitting the treads and fastening them in place.|
|A lot of heavy lumber made up the framework for the front entry deck.|
|Bill and Jeff are fitting decking boards to the steps of the front deck.|
|There are not a lot of studs in the wall between the porch and the new bathroom.|
|As Jeff picked up the last of his supplies, you can see that the back steps are complete.|
And now we have a good idea where the final grade for the yard will need to be.
