Ohia Post And RedWood


We put up some Ohia post and redwood rafters today.. I'm sure the little Makita battery chain saw has a purpose but it's not cutting 8" Ohia post. We had to get out some bigger beam saws. We went over the outside with the flapper disc to get to old brown off.

Re: Ohia Post And RedWood


Do those notched posts meet hurricane specs (I'm assuming for HI), in case one passes by/gets close?

The house is a single wall built in 1956. It's in the jungle with no running water to it. The new deck will be the strongest thing on that property. It's a 1,350 sq. ft. home worth 1 million$$$
It takes a good 10 minuets to get up the mountain to it from town.

If you do the instant grams try Tantalus Lookout and that's only half way up.

The view would be a lot better but it's blocked by the jungle of trees.
The HO is cutting down a bamboo field now to help clear out some space.

The hare wood has arrived and we will be starting it Saturday.
