They are all the rage in these parts.
Scot and I went to Home Depot and priced wood. Since most commodities come to Hawaii by ship, things are expensive, and big heavy things, like 4"x8" beams, whoa Nellie. But it's only money, some say.
We will be staking out the placement for the footers for the deck soon. Here's how that will go: Dig a hole (where are those pigs when you need them?) then fill with gravel, and finally the precast footers. They each weight 160 lbs. and there will be twenty-some of them. Anyone got a 4-wheel drive truck? Hoping for a little help via the aloha spirit. As always, we shall see.
