After the metal frame -- designed by Eugene Stacy -- is complete, Perry Hopman (left) and Drew Nichols begin to slide the first deck boards into place.
Stacy (top) and Charles Watson load lumber to be lifted up to the deck.
Hopman makes quick work of demolishing a decorative wall where a window into the living quarters will become a sliding door.
Nichols begins the process of attaching the deck boards to the frame.
Using a pencil as a spacer, Hopman, Stacy & Nichols lay out deck boards and attach them to the frame.
When you're not Bob Villa, you help out whenever you can. Like in this instance, after someone had obviously called out, "Cossey, hold this board."
It's always important to maintain balance between work... and rest.
