Here is how the structure and deck looks in place.

Under the highway bridge river view.



Close up of the deck nail holes.



Done for tonight.

Looks awesome Tom.  Two questions:

1. Do you have the water in place already or is that just paint?
2  Are you going to build stairs from on top to the deck?

Really nice, Tom.  In place it also provides a cool focal point.

The deck came out very nicely, Tom.

You'll be pleased to know I touched up some of the timber ends mid way through my current build.

Cheers, Mark.

Curt,

Thank you for the nice compliment on the river area.  Two answers!

1. No, the brown is just a double coat of the river base color. The river won't be that dark near the surface.

2. No, no stairs from the top to the deck. Stay tuned for stairs from one deck to the other.

Thank you also. I have lots of details to add to this area. Mostly scenery and other goodies.

Not much structure work today. I did get the four walls glued together. Used Quick Grips to make sure all the joints were tight.



I used a metal square to make sure all the walls were square after gluing and prior to the final tightening of the Quick Grips.

Tom:  How "tight" do you apply the Irwin clamps on the structures?
