    I like the projects you work on and the tips you give. I also appreciate the quality of the video production. So many Youtube videos leave me with nausea and a headache from unneeded camera movement, weird angles and sloppy editing. Cheers

    Seems to me that too many people are worried about code. It's just a simple deck, amply supported, and for sure it will last for 20 years if not more. For what it is, I think it's well done.

    У нас даже самые рукожопы такого себе не позволяют. Это не то что на коленке сделано, а на каком-то другом органе. У нас бы уже столько гавна получил бы в комментах, а буржуи вон делают и не парятся. Миллионы подписчиков и тысячи лайков.

    This would never pass a building inspection where I live - for a whole bunch of reasons.

    Lots of good comments, one thing I didn't see was crowning. Make sure to check your lumber, crown up.
