The Gorse Fox has spent much of the day dodging showers. Despite the interruptions he has managed to get the first module of the deck framed and squared off (this is known as the dining deck). The second module is underway, but several torrential cloudbursts put paid to his enthusiasm. In the end he called it a day and came in for a hot shower.
Plan for tomorrow is a quick trip to Screwfix. The Gorse Fox has decided that the way he was trying to blind-fix the outer joists to the posts is not practical. As a result, Plan B, requires some 140mm screws, which do not currently sit within his collection. Armed with said screws the posts will be fitted to the ledger board of the second module (the verandah deck, as the Gorse Fox has christened it). Then the rest of the second module will be framed out.
