While the concrete slab was heated up to almost 30°C to dry before the timber floor can be glued down, nobody wanted to work inside. So the guys were kept busy with the deck frames. First they drilled plenty of holes that were filled with concrete. A few days later the framework was up to start with the decking boards.
We have selected Vitex, an eco-sourced hard wood from the Solomon Islands. It is supposed to turn silver when not oiled. That should reflect sunlight into the house. At least, that’s the plan. We’ll see.
As soon as the timber floor arrives, focus will be switched to laying the floor in the house and the deck will be completed later.
