Time to rebuild the porch steps…

I was able to scrounge some used lumber a week or so ago…


Nearly new, since it came from some interior framing. I had asked Neighbor S if I could tag along next time he went to the Lowes in the big town about 50 miles away because I needed some lumber. He said he had just salvaged some and that I should help myself. It wasn’t exactly what I wanted but I did not argue.


The treads are okay but the platform planks were getting kind of rickety.


And it’s Monsoon, and I want to be sure of traction on wet wood. So…


Tobie and I replaced the platform.

A Generous Reader sent me some traction tape quite a while ago…


I knew right where it would eventually go, and stored it most carefully.


And I’ve got a bit of a quandary here because I would normally nail it down with roofing nails. But the adhesive works so well on new lumber that it doesn’t appear to need that. I’ll keep an eye on the situation; I’ve got lots of roofing nails.
