Building decking – part four

After finishing the frame, we could fix the decking boards in place.

After cutting the boards to length, we used green coated decking screws to secure them, allowing a 5mm gap between each board.  Having two cordless drills was very handy, one for drilling the pilot holes, the other to drive the screws – all 252 of them!

Next job will be doing it all again on the smaller second section of deck – then building the steps.
