The plans passed the permit and process and then went on to pass the real world test as they guided the contractor Vince hired to build the deck. Now those plans are rolled up and forgotten somewhere but the deck they illustrated stands proudly and serves ably. Here is a recent email Vince was nice enough to send me.
Hope things are going well and best wishes. I want to thank-you again for the work you did in helping me to get my new beautiful deck completed. As my wife and I near retirement, we plan to tear out the trailer and build an A-frame behind the deck and you are the guy we will go to. I know you can give us some good ideas. Several pictures are attached. Thanks again, Vince Martin
Couldn’t have done better myself. It is a very well’made deck. This video goes into greater detail on how I designed it to be built.
