Oscar's New Home - Part 2

Now that the support logs for the sawmill had settled in, it was time to build the deck.  Kevin started by nailing beams to the outside of the logs for stability.  Next came crossboards between the support logs to give them strength.  Then it was leveling time.

Again using the transit, we went from post to post, identifying which posts were too high or too low.  Taking the lowest, Kevin trimmed the others with the chainsaw, making each the right height.

Now it was time to build the outside deck support.  We knew we were going to have to offset this from the carriage rails and yet, we still wanted at least three feed of walking room. Plus, we needed a smaller walking space on the backside of the sawmill to make it easier to load the logs.  With that in mind, Kevin began cutting lumber for the deck foundation.
At the end of the day, everything was ready for the decking itself.  We had very little waste as Kevin is great at using every inch of wood possible.
