Here Robert is "spacing" the boards so they have space to expand and contract with the changing weather.
Sam is on the deck finishing up with his row of screws to attach the deck boards to the frame boards. His drill died in the middle. Robert elected to use the riser w/steps from the steps that were attached to the back door when we arrived. He'll be redoing them as monies allow :) The other man is the nephew, Micheal's, father, Darryl.
