Then this is the days work, well a day, a few hours really but it
looks no further on than the day before.

Oh yes the corner where I have put the shingle.
I had to re-level as the second joist in was a little out, so again more time.
It will get there eventually.

Cut the first piece into the doorframe section.

Laid the rest out to make sure all fitted OK.

Went and got some more bags of shingle to add between the joists
to help keep them in place and less movement hopefully.

I was busy sorting the decking for quite a lot of the day yesterday
but it seems like nothing got done.

I cut the decking to length, my saw only cuts to 140mm and we bought 145mm decking, oops.
We used the trusty hacksaw blade to finish the cuts.

Then we marked out the gaps and decided what way the decking fitted best.

Next problem was the new decking was a lot thicker so would not sit under the door frames.
So the both had to come off to cut, nothing went to straight forward, one of those days.

Looks like I did nothing yesterday, if so it took four hours to do nothing  ;)

I screwed all the joists and spacers into place but also levelled it all the best we could.
As it has been down for many a year the timbers are a little all over the place.

Off to start cutting the decking to fit now.

All cut and in position, ready to be screwed into place and level.

There was a good selection of rusted in screws taken out the old decking

They were certainly rotten.

Digging out the second rotten joist.

There was a joint already 4 feet back so it seemed silly to cut 18 inches
off and have another joint. The only problem was the screws holding the two
together had rusted in so we had to drill and chisel out the joint. It did take a while.
Off to do the second one this morning

The rain did come down yesterday but I was able to get outside for
a short while early morning and late afternoon.

A couple of the main beams had completely rotted so it's off this morning
to get replacements to fit. The new decking arrived.

All the old decking got taken up.
