Ledger on pump room wall
We replaced the rim joist on this wall and doubled it to make a secure base for fastening the ledger. There is a metal flashing on the joists that directs any water away from the wall. The deck joist is fastened to the ledger with spacers to keep an air flow around the ledger.
The deck is framed up and ready for the decking.
The new hatch
We inserted a flush hatch latch to help with getting the hatch open
The new door sill
We replaced the sill with a new piece of fir and rehung the door for a better fit
