How I Built My Floating Deck on Uneven Ground (video)

In which I, an unwashed novice in the ancient arts of Deck Building, built a level freestanding/floating one. Huzzah!

I hope this helps with your own build. I didn't re-invent the wheel, but I made damn sure it was level.

Local mosquitoes know this is a likely spot to find me 
during the 6.5 weeks of summer we get in the Northeast. 
No joke, my shovels were next to the front door 
for seven months between this past Fall and Winter. Brutal.

In which I don my jester's hat in the hopes that humor will cure part of the raging frustration headache I get when surfing the news. Perhaps you can relate?

The above picture is one of several anthropomorphic paintings or prints that hung in a nearby antique store. I have no idea if they are there today. Here a couple others.

Marmaduke: circa 1580.

Stay thirsty, my friends.

Be seeing you,
