Steel Deck

I just love to work, to build and create, just seems to be my calling.

This project in town is a replacement deck, preaty much fabricted out of welded steel.

The owner, Dan, came up from Las Cruces for the weekend to help raise the steel posts and beams. I did the measuring, cutting and welding then Dan helped hoist the beams into place.

Basically 4 steel posts and two exsisiting wooden 4 x 8 posts with brackets and 4 beams.

Next will be thirteen Cee Profile rafters and then topped off with an extruded aluminum decking.

When I'm feeling healthy and feeling stong there is no stopping me. Work, work, work, go, go, go. Then when the day is done and the tools are put away it's time to drink a cold beer or two.
