Needless to say we have been extremely busy getting our stand prepared and decided to build an entire small oak frame to take with us – photos below:

All Hands On Deck

Oak framed deck

The stonework at Parks Cottage has recently been completed which means we finally got to install the outside decking area on the south side of the newly built oak framed house

The views down the valley are mildly spectacular on the worst of days, and so when the sun is shining the 30m2 of oak framed deck area is going to be hard to resist

The frame is short and stubby, so as not to require a handrail which would disrupt the views from inside the house……we still just managed to squeeze some dinky bracing in though for stability.

Jake and I installed the chunkily joisted frame on day 1, cutting the posts on site to suit the concrete pad levels.

On day 2 we cut and fixed the dry oak decking boards with a 10mm spacing and 3″ stainless steel ring shanked nails, all piloted. Nice to do really repetitive work for a change and to give the brain a rest!
