I used to post here all the time, primarily masonry, but also the carpentry sub sections, etc...

Figured I'd jump back in and see if anyone remembers me...

Good to see you back.

Treated lumber ain’t what it use to be. My guess that is not ground contact rated as it should be that close to the ground.

So you not doing masonry now?
Yea, still do it all...

It's funny, I thought so as well. It's Madison lumber, ground contact, Copper Azole...I found a few tags. A lot of flat blocking for the pic frame, probably didn't treat any cuts, no flashing, stair stringers we're mush.

Yep, I remember you. In fact every once in a while I think, "Now, what would Superseal do in this situation.

I still use my big giant to pull posts. Best simple idea seen ever.

Glad you're back. Stay awile.

Did you replace every joist? Some look fresh while some look they still have water stains, although they look cleaned up a bit. It was my understanding that new and existing joists shouldn't be mixed because the new joists will "shrink" as it dries (assuming it's PT) and you may wind up with "wavy" decking. Looks good though. I don't do many repair jobs.

Didn't replace every joist, the water content even with all new lumber varies a bit so you're never really safe. I get what your saying though. We did leave them a little proud when we planed everything out.
