Excellent job, I’m just finishing up I will Call it my Covid deck!
I had to build two decks on opposite ends of the house, the smaller deck I could only work on Friday and Saturdays so as not to disturb the owner.

The town held up my permit Until a soil test was done for density, I will be done tomorrow.
