Mini Post: Deck Rebuild –

By Wayne Halm –

With the support posts in place, it was time to bring home some serious lumber.

Prior to this the Mean Green Machine carried everything for me. I put the top down and let the boards stick out the back.  (I’m kicking myself for not taking a picture of that.)  But Mean Green could only carry three at a time – I needed much more capacity.

The Mean Green Machine – A woman in the Home Depot parking lot told me, “That’s the fanciest truck I have ever seen.”

Here I got just plain ‘lucky’. My friend Kapena offered to let me use his truck.  The truck made moving the lumber possible, but it didn’t make it easy.   Even with the truck I had to make three trips.

Kapena’s truck. The rack he uses to carry his surf board came in quite handy.

The old guy working alone became an issue again. Toward the end of the day those boards were getting heavy – really heavy.  But I did it.

You bet it was a subdued evening. I was content to just sit and reflect on the deck being another step closer to done.  Check tomorrow and see if enough Aleve allows me to do something with the lumber.

Then – Come play golf with me.

    • Aloha Jim,

      “Holding my own”??? Jim, at the end of the day I was too tired to hold anything but a scotch glass. That overhead truck rack seemed like a great idea – that is until I had to lift the boards up there and take them back down. It kicked my butt. Glad it is behind me now.

      A Hui Hou,
      Wayne
