|Six-by-six timbers are heavy. They are also hard to cut. Sadly, it is also impossible to create four 51-inch posts from two eight footers, requiring a trip back to one of our local big-box hardware stores to buy two more.
But here we are, time to install the deck posts. First, I attached the steel post bases to the J-bolts sticking up from the footings:
Then it was time to measure and cut and measure again and cut again, adding bracing to keep the post plumb.
Once all seems well, it's time to drive in the first nail of our new deck!
And here we have all four posts installed and ready for the beams.
