New 15 x 30 Correct Deck CX Deck

Here is our latest project, a 15' x 30' Correct Deck CX Composite Deck.
The deck boards will run on a alternate 45 degree pattern. With a single picture frame border,
Center seam board and a 4' diamond inlay. The deck will have stone post sleeves covering the support posts, and Correct Deck CX, DCL railings with round Fortress balusters.
There will also be the new Timber Tech Deck lites on the posts and the risers
The Stairs were moved once we laid the deck out, the homeowner preferred the stairs exiting off the 45 degree angle, on the side closest to the steps in the 3D drawing.
Here is a before picture of the home and we already have the post hole footings done and approved by the building dept. and the support poles are set and we will start framing tomorrow.

Framing and finished pictures

We finished up the framing on the deck last Saturday. Monday we had a framing inspection because it is a low level deck. Tuesday we installed the double tiered fascia, and the deck boards. Wednesday we cut in the borders and built all the rail sections. Thursday we got rained out. Friday we finished up the railings and power washed the deck and cleaned up the jobsite
