Day 2 of our 4th of July holiday deck build started with a massive Lowe's run for lumber and fasteners. We ran out of deck screws with two boards left on the first level of flooring, right? My goal was to stay ahead of Kelley. If She was ready to hang the joists on level 2, then I needed to be working the rim joists for level 3. The lumber we got was massive, so we lost most of the morning with that run. Still, we start with the mid-day pictures.

|We need more joist hangers!|
|Level 2 is floored!|
|We finally got to finish off the last 2 boards on level 1 as well|

We're halfway through this holiday build out and ready for the next Lowe's run. Need some more joist hangers, and now we know exactly how many 2x8's we still need to buy. We're rolling, and ready to keep going. Day 3 is next.
