Building a Deck - Part 2


Deck 2

Six 60-pound bags of ready-mix concrete were mixed in a wheelbarrow. Post anchors for 4x4 posts were attached to the footings after the concrete cured for 48 hours. The anchors were aligned with a long straight board. Diagonal measurements were checked to square the anchor positions.

Approximate time (not including curing time): 3-4 hours.

Deck 3

Beams were made from double 2x6s. They were attached in the post anchors. A 1/2-inch-thick pressure-treated shim was installed between the beam and one side of the anchor at each footing. The anchor is 31/2 inches wide and the beam is 3 inches thick.

Approximate time: 2-3 hours.

Deck 4

Beam alignment was checked and adjusted as necessary to make certain beams were square.

Approximate time: 1/2-3/4 hour.
