Day 176: Notching Posts


Our contractor got the posts installed at back of the house for our back deck and porch. They are 20' cedar posts, 6x6 in width. They're about 7 feed apart. To attach the back deck, we needed to install a 2x10 ledge board against the house and a double 2x10 rim board around the posts. We notched out the posts to accommodate the rim boards.  It was quite a feat to notch the boards while they were standing. We got a large 4x8 pallet with plywood attached to it and put it on the forks of the Bobcat. I stood on the pallet and used the circular saw to cut a bunch of kerfs into the post. I then knocked them out and cleaned out the notches with a

Once the notches were installed, we put the rim board inside the notches.

We weren't able to completely finish on Saturday, so Monday Nate and Steve helped again and we finished putting in the last of the floor joists.
