There is a lot of problem solving on the job-site. The outside border had a tad too much gap between it and the inside border. I bolted a 2x4 to the frame and used a pipe-clamp to bring the outside in a bit. Worked great! #problemsolved #deckbuilder #azekbuildingproducts #deckwithcurves #decklife #infinitedecks #carpentry #figureitout #gtape #fastenmaster
Shoutout to my man Leonardo DaVinci and his drawing commonly referred to as The #Vitruvianman . This famous drawing is an illustration of the ideal human body proportions and their correlation to geometry as described by #Vitruvius . Vitruvius claimed that the naval is the center of the human body. If you were to place a compass on a fixed point of the naval you can draw a perfect circle around the human body. He also found that the height of a man is equal to his wingspan thus placing the human body perfectly into a square. #squaringacircle #LeonardoDaVinci #geometry #neoplatonism #LUomoVitruviano #canonofproportions #deckbuilder #deckwithcurves #carpentry #infinitedecks #decks
When we cut our picture frame boards we typically use a miter saw to make precise cuts. This deck has a radius and the custom curved boards have to be cut with a circular saw. The tricky part is that you cannot read & draw the angles on a curved board using the same methods used on a board that is straight. This corner of the deck has a straight board meeting up with this curved board. . To achieve a nice mitered corner first, we have to find the correct angle. We lay both boards in place and allow one to sit over top of the other. Next, we mark the outside and inside edges of each board at their bisecting points. Then, I simply connect the points marked on each board and viola we have our angles! . We clamp a straight edge onto the curved board to achieve a ‘miter saw’ like cut. Only 15 more of these cuts on this deck!😅 .

That’s a wrap! The 2018 Deck Expo was a blast!! Stay classy deck ninjas! We’ll see you next year.
Bringing home a few awards from the @nadrarocks 2018 awards show!! 1st place Alternative Deck Under $25K and 2nd place People’s Choice Award!! The awards dinner was at the National Aquarium. No joke, NADRA rented the entire aquarium for this event. So cool!!
Wow! 9 incredible years already!! 🥂Happy Anniversary Jen! Can’t believe you haven’t left or stabbed me by now. Love you so much😘 I’m not sure how long ago this pic was taken but it had to be over 10 years ago.
We just finished up some @railcraftcentral cable railing with @azekbuildingproducts top-cap! I love theses two Azek Vintage colors together! We used Coastline for the main part of the deck and Dark Hickory for the border color. On to the next!! #infinitedecks #azek #cablerailing #deckdesign #decklife #customrailing #deckbuilding #deckbuilder #deckrailing #boosted
This porch is about finished! We are ready for our screens and @railcraftcentral railings! This screen porch is loaded with features. Everything is wrapped with @azekbuildingproducts and the decking is from Azek’s Vintage Weathered Teak with a double Dark Hickory border. There is a gas fireplace with a cedar mantel. A TV will be mounted above the mantel and cable will come up through the tech tube. The ceiling fan is mounted below our exposed cedar rafters and cedar T&G. A dimmer switch controls the custom lighting that is mounted to the wall headers. As you walk out through a retractable screen door you’ll see a spiral staircase with Azek Vintage treads. #screenporch #minnesotalife #fireplace #azekbuildingproducts #bugfree #boosted #decklife #deckbuilder #outdoorliving #hdtv
Low-E windows can reflect more heat onto the deck. #funfacts #azekdecking #deckbuilder #infinitedecks #pvcdecking #neat #decklife
My daughter and I flew the drone for a bit yesterday morning. We took a few halfway decent pics. We also had to lock the dog in the house because he wouldn’t stop barking at the drone. It’s ok Reuben, the drone is more scared of us than we are of the drone. #bordodeck #azekbuildingproducts #deckbuilder #decklife #curvesahead #birdseyeview #deck #decksofinstagram #fastenmaster #whosdownwithpvc #yeahyouknowme

Collated and all facing the same direction!! Thanks @fastenmasterpro & @minnesota_fastenmaster_larry for getting these collated Cortex plugs to us!

Squaring this freestanding 4x8 stair landing was a cinch using this ratchet strap! #deckbuilder #azekbuildingproducts #square #stairlanding #ratchetstraps #infinitedecks #mindovermatter #bordobuild #azekdecking #vintage #goteem
