Before I left for the weekend I snapped a photo of the deck after Hal removed and added new supports for the deck beside the sliding door. He has since finished all the joists as well as the laid the deck boards along the narrow portion farther back. When I get back home I will take photos.
Prior to this he had also put in the joists along the narrow portion and had picked up the metal roofing and installed it on the shed underneath.

It's an open ended shed mainly just to keep large items out of the weather and so they don't need to be kept inside the garage. Mainly the chick brooder and the riding mower. Probably also straw bales. It will be nice to have room to access our vehicles inside the garage. He's done a lot of good work. Nice to have a handy guy around the house.
