Nice 8' deep holes by the house, for the deck.

We pounded posts in the ground for the fence. If we had helical piles we could have put those guard towers in the corners.

The guards on the steps look out of place. I don't think I would've put them up.

Steps w/o rails like poop, if there is no rail going down the steps, the 1st thing grabbed, is the rail on the deck, in 3 years it is leaning, That will look more out of place.

Yes Sir, exactly.....

Production framing SUCKED, but if you paid attention you did learn several valuable lessons....

The biggest lesson was to never work production framing again....

I was a lead. Man do I have some stories of some hack things I caught guys doing. Although there were some really professional high production high quality guys as well. I wish the camera phone was invented back then I'd have some pics.
