You can if you're a sole proprietor. OSHA regulations only apply to employees.

You look like you need a bullhorn standing out on the side of that mountain on top of the beam.

You could yell at those idiot liberals!!! Lol

Re: Deck Over A Steep Grade. ( 2:1 )


So we predrilled, preped and installed our knee braces today. Couldn't install the threaded rod because my yard sent out 5/8" instead of 1/2".

So it's a three step process of prep before install. We first countersink at a 45 degree angle using a 1-3/8" forstner bit, (see detail). We hit the 1/2" hole again with the drill jig. Thirdly we drill freehand all the way through the knee brace which will be critical for alignment during thru drilling into the final part of the install.


A jig we made to make quick work of it.

The chances of me getting 1 straight treated 6x10 here are slim and none, you are very lucky to have that available to you. It must be nice.
