This is one of the two spec homes I have been working on. They are within shouting distance of one another, and are being built by the same corporation. The whole arrangement is very clean and very convenient.
The footing forms, waiting for concrete. The shrouded apparatus on the right is my cement mixer; (apparently, a finish carpenter with a cement mixer is a bit of an anomaly.)
Preliminary framing. When you're setting a hundred joist hangers, it's nice to have one of these.
I missed getting any pictures of the completed raw frame. Here is the decking going down. I run the ends wild over the seams...
Preparing to install the skirt boards. The skirt boards wrap the edge of the decking and help create that wonderful "finished" look.
Last Thursday, installing the railing. This was my first all-composite railing. In the past I have always used redwood.
