CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"

Gerry Ave Deck


From one house to another. As fate would have it, I only need to step across the driveway to start my next project on Gerry Ave. At this home I'll be building a "Pressure Treated" deck 12' x 18' with steps on each end. All material used will be pressure treated. After the deck has been completed, I will then take out an existing window and transform that opening into a new rear door entry to the house and also used as access to the new deck.
