Well after having removed all the decking off the verandah today has been a day for
jousting joisting. We knew the joists would in places be showing the ravages of being exposed to water for 12 years, so had decided to replace the joists as part of the project.
So today has been removing joists and joist hangers. Not the easiest job I have ever under taken but at least there were no annular nails. I was also using the two tools I am most skillful with, a big hammer and wrecking bar!
Another day or so of removing before the cavalry arrive on Monday to rescue me and carry out the technical skillful bits. Those that require measuring and cutting etc. Many thanks "The Mate".
