But first: stair stringers to join the 2 decks.
I modeled them in Sketchup first to save myself the trouble of figuring out angles. I messed it up a good 4 times virtually before I got it exactly right. That’s why it’s worth doing it on the computer first.
Extra care is needed where the deck joins into the house to make sure the water flows away from the house.
I have nowhere to stand on at first so I’m playing acrobatics on joists trying not to eat one.
I left it finished enough that we could use it, but I still have a couple of boards to rip for the edges, and of course, we need banisters.
