    Default New deck for my old cabin

    Picked up materials today for an 8x20 treated wood deck. Loaded and hauled to the house. This weekend we will haul them down the pipeline corridor in the pickup, and then load them onto a sled behind the snow machine for the short haul to the cabin. As soon as the weather warms we will be tearing off the old one, and replacing it with the treated wood.

    Built " loft" deck last spring. Wife and I really enjoy watching wildlife and having breakfast from there. Worth every penny!IMG_20160826_135430690.jpg

    Did one a few years ago on my brother's cabin. AWW including the stairs. 10x16 I have pics of it on CL if you want to check it out. Brother passed away, and the place is for sale.

    I like that loft deck. In the fall when the grass is 6' tall at my place, I like to get up on the roof and watch for wildlife.

    Hauled in 3 cords of firewood and material for a 10x28 & 4x24 side deck in the last 2 weeks. Also ran the 54 mile trapline for the last time on Sunday. Time to do some fishing!
