Very Happy

I could sure use some help building a deck for my pool and replacing some of my stockade fence! Smile There's like 10-12 sections of fence that need replaced and I'd like to build a 8'x12' deck around the pool.

I'll supply the food and drinks and most tools. You supply appetites, labor, and bikin-clad wimmens. Smile

Seriosuly though, would anyone wanna come help me out? Think of it as a pool party BBQ with a little manual labor... Wink

(no sausage fest)

After reading the poll options I am having second thoughts. We have to wear a bathing suit and swing a hammer? What kind of bathing suit? And who's hammer are we swinging? Cause as much as I like you Crono, I don't like you in that way No

Wow. I wasn't sure I'd get any sort of response!

I'm game whenever you guys are. Got a date in mind? Anything but the 15th, it looks like. Smile

And if you could bring your own tools, things would move faster. I have the basics, and duplicates of most, but if you all bring your own, then there will definately be enough tools so that everyone can work instead of waiting for a hammer or drill or saw... Wink

I could even be ready this weekend if you guys could.

Anyone got a post digger?

Shoot, that means I gotta set the timing on Big Ugly so I can go get the lumbah! Wink

And Fishah, please wear a tool belt or something too... affraid

I'll make every effort to be there.
I know this weekend doesnt work. I need to pick up my daughter from camp Sat.
Until you pick a weekend I cant have my scheduler (wife) tell me if I can....I mean check the calender for openings.
Only thing that sucks is carrying tools means its the 95 again.

I don't mean for you to bring table saws and the like... I was thinking more along the lines of hammers, tape, and cordless drills. Smile

I can hook you up on materials! As for putting it together, that's why I'm into cars not decks. Razz

Mark, that would rock if you could find those screws!

And Matt, I'll get a materials list together. You guys deliver to Nashua? Wink

So what works best for you guys? This Saturday the 8th, Next Saturday the 15th, or the following Saturday the 22nd? This Saturday or the 22nd would be best for me, as I can use the Friday before to dig out the holes and pour the cement for the deck supports.

This is awesome guys. Really, it is. Smile

I would dig 4 3' holes. And drop about 4 inches of concrete in the bottom of each hole the day before. Then once the main skeleton is bulit. Pour concrete around the uprights to about 4 inches below grade, and backfill with dirt. At that point You can continue to build the deck. The weight of the concrete will keep it from moving. F-it, Also it is good to coat the 4x4s in tar or bed liner or undercoat where they will be in the ground. Just the sides though. Leave the bottoms uncovered.

They also sell the anchors that support the posts ABOVE the ground so the posts never contact anything that will degrade them. You set them right in the column before it sets. I assume your using pressure treat for joists & posts. What are you using for the decking?

Thinking about using the new style that sit on blocks and don't need holes dug. Floating-foundation decks. I need to look into local building codes first though. My stepfather is trying to convince me to go that route.

And yes, I plan on PT posts and frame. Would like to us the Trex (or similar) for decking, but that may be cost prohibitive.

That system looks like a leveling nightmare but if your yard is somewhat flat & hard its doable. I do HATE digging holes & mixing tons of concrete so Bills footing suggestion is the best for that. Code? I dont know. Wouldnt fly in my town but our building inspector builds everything for hurricanes. As long as you know what you want & have the supplies. Guess I better make it after all this posting

22nd would be best for me, think I have a concert out on that side of the state that night anyway, so it would be dope for me and the lady.

I have all the basic hand tools, as well as drills, banana hammock, circ. saws, levels, all kinds of shit, I do carpentry part time to fill the gaps.

Make it the 22nd since that one involves you getting it started before we get there. I like to finish projects other people started and then take the credit Very Happy

Plus I'm not good around concrete and the like. I'm not patient enought to let it dry and such Mad

Well, it's looking more and more like I'm going to use the floating deck system so NOBODY has to dig, mix and pour concrete. It supposedly meets all state and local codes, except in NJ, so it should be good. I'm going to call town hall tomorrow to be sure.

And Matt, I'm coming to see you tomorrow!!!! Very Happy

Looking like the 22nd would be best.
Car show this weekend BBQ next weekend.
That would leave plenty of time for you to get prepped.
I dug out the screws
They are #8 2 1/2 inches with a no rust coating.
About 1 hundred give or take.

Hopefully that Friday Frank and I can set the posts. Smile

SWEET! You guys bring tools, too. Whatever you have that will be helpful. Tapes, cordless drills (with CHARGED batteries!), tapes, hammers, tapes, skill saws, tapes... We should be able to knock it out fairly quick, I hope!

Bring your bathing suits, too!

How high is your pool? Or should I say, how high is the deck? You want your 4x4 upright deck posts 36" above the finish decking.

I'm out. I'm a bit laid up right now with some health issues and doubt I'll be doing any better by this weekend. I'll do my best to help with your next project to make up for it though.

The deck height will be somewhere between 48 & 52 inches.

I'm gonna start early. So any time after 7am will be good. Smile

My address is 148 East Dunstable Rd, Nashua NH, 03062. Take route 3 to exit 4, take a left at the end of the ramp. Cross over the highway and then I'm 1/4 mile on the left. Look for the coolest mailbox on the street. Smile

My cell is 603-4eight9-98eight4.

Thanks to all who can make it!

Hey, does anyone have a framing nailer?

I have a hammer, tape, 4 foot level, three different saws, and a bad attitude. geek Does that count.

If I make it there it will be after 2:30.

Pressure treated isnt happy unless you pre-drill anyway.

Crovo, sorry to say, but I will not be able to make it tomorrow, the weather today totally F-ed me, so I have a bunch of work to make up tomorrow.

Best of luck with the project, wish I could make it to hang out with everyone.

Doug

Ya when they're wet its even worse.
They nail up easy but you have to keep pushing the hernias back in.
I'll be there a little after 7. Sleep
Hopefully the trunk full of tools will keep me from bringing the Nashua police with me. tongue
Any last minute requests?

Yeah, what happened??? Sad

Thanks to all the guys who showed up yesterday! Especially to Steve, because I doubt I would have even gotten started (especially that EARLY!) without him! Very Happy And those sausages you brought were awesome. I can't wait to grill up some sausages and peppers now! Your son Matt was a good helper, too.

Fishah (aka "lobstah boy"), thanks for bringing the muscle yesterday. And the entertainment. Smile Oh, and it's called sunscreen. You should try it.

And Ant, thanks for keeping tract of my nut bag. Razz I couldn't stop laughing! Also, thanks for hanging around long enough to help me finish up for the day and carry the rest of the lumber in. Hope the girls had a good time. Sorry I had to give you guys the boot at tubby time. Smile

It was a good day. It was a hot phucker tho! Good thing we had the pool to jump in when we overheated! We only got interrupted by two thundershowers, but they were gone as soon as they showed up. Well, the lunchtime one stuck around long enough to completely drench me while grilling in the rain... Smile

So we ended the day yesterday with the full frame up and all the 4x4 supports and footings in place. Now I just gotta put the floor joists in and the floor boards and I'll have a deck! Then the railings and the stairs. Wink

So for all the guys that missed out yesterday, you can come by today or next weekend, as I'll still be working on it then. Smile

That's a very good reason to have at this point! Smile

I'm sure you "worked" a lot less hard than we did yesterday. Razz
