Really, the only thing I did for this deck was help mike take measurements, give some input on what the shape should be, and paint a really cute flower pot to sit on the deck when it’s finished, and sat inside and looked pretty while Mike and his dad worked 10 hour days in the blazing summer heat. SO, all the thanks go to Mikes dad and to Mike and his super awesome friends and two brothers. none to me. Mostly mikes dad though. He knows everything about building a deck, even has a fancy book about decks and everything.
