I never said that is was finished. The glue on the half laps was only set long enough to take the clamps off not to tune up the ends or sand anything.

Does the front part of the rectangle disengage so the child can step up to get inside, or do they have to bend under it to get inside?

We have another freind that purchased one with a opening front but I talked to them about it and they never use it.

The one I built for my kids doesn’t open either and has never been a problem.

Wow that's bad!!
That vinyl plank does need a very flat surface.
Nice job.

Nothing really off note this week. I was working for another contractor last week and half of this week in a modular park building entry decks and skirting.
Then went back to the company I work for to start doing the bulkheads in the duplex we finished framing. Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)-20200522_141746.jpg

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


I installed a trench drain across a driveway last week.

The driveway sheetflows to the decorative stone area. I knew it would be an issue when I saw the landscape plan. I told everyone it was a problem at the time.

Install went well, owners like the look.
