They say I’m not playing with a full deck….

Maybe they are right…

Last year we tore down a small 8 x 6 ish deck off of the front of the house.  It turns out that the …ahem … gentleman we contracted to do the job sunk a couple concrete posts a grant total of about 20″ down into the ground.  Needless to say the deck has moved more than … well … something that moves a lot!

Introducing the new deck in all its glory.  A 16′ x 24′ monstrosity.  4 8″ Diameter Posts sunk a full 40″ underground.

The deck is really so big I have hard time taking pictures of it all in one piece…

All of the decking was put down using the Kreg Deck Jig.  The Jig works fine, but it does take twice as long as just screwing them down.
