A deck that I helped tear down and rebuild when I worked as a contractor's assistant
During the tear down process, we had to make sure that the structural integrity of the house wasn’t at risk. Only after reinforcing the deck did we start laying down floor boards.
I also gained experience with hand and construction tools, as we needed to find a lot of creative ways to cut the materials we needed to the right size. Even though rebuilding a deck isn’t a typical design project, it was a valuable experience as I learned a lot about building projects on a large scale, as well as working with customers to meet deadlines.
