Deck Weather at the Duckworthy Estate
A couple of days ago, the Branco crew laid the deck boards in front of the dining room and kitchen. Here's Steve Brandt, President of the company, checking a spacing tool. It has guides for narrow screws on either end. The screws go into the deck boards at an angle, on their sides, so that there are no visible screws or screw holes on the surface of the deck.
And here's Tim Yanko using the "fine tool" to cut the ends off the siding boards so that the deck boards can have a snug connection to the side of the house.
Here's deck weather at the Duckworthy Estate. The only thing missing are the ducks.
Tomorrow is the anniversary of our move here. A squadron of ducks were sunning themselves on the dock, "Boone's Dock," when we arrived. Hence, Duckworthy Estate.
