All Hands on Decks

The framer began framing the decks and the sheathing underlayment for the stone piers at the front and back of the house this week.

A second-floor deck off the master bedroom will be going in on the back of the house soon, and deck railings and cedar shingles at the gables -- both front and back -- should be going in even sooner.

The photo on the bottom shows the framer working on the pier frame at the back deck. He's very young and bright and likable, but he says the piers have been too time-intensive to build and he wants a raise.

"Next job," I told him.
