Got a call from a homeowner that wanted an estimate on a patio awning. He said he was going to tear down his existing deck and already had a contractor starting the new deck next week.
Check out the deck he is tearing down. He said he added joist hangers to it when he bought the house.

That is awesome! I seen awesome before, that is the most awesome of awesome!!!! Never mind the 3 mile span - the beams running parallel with the joists is world class!!!!!

"I've 2 x 8 joists and I'm putting in 6 x 6 with double 2 x 8's for beams" That would sound pretty good to anyone. Who would assume this is what was meant?

There are plenty of old school decks and porches around here with the decking run out from the building. You just have to do the beams different:whistling

Nothing wrong with that deck OR the stairs. It's got a beam under it, so what's the issue? :laughing: Sometimes I need a good laugh...Thanks!

What's wrong with a little red (or silver) in your repairs? It ain't leaking on the customers, is it? :laughing:

When people call me to look at stuff normally I have to look a little maybe get a flashlight get a little dirty crawling around. Seriously what would you do if you got the call and saw that. I think I would just fall over laughing. Might not be appropriate but what else can you do.
