Ipe Progress Pics
Well my installation is in full swing and thought I would share a few pics along the way. We are DIY'er's and have never built anything of this magnitude before, but we are having a good time and learning along the way thanks to all the good folks here. It is certainly not the work of art that many of the professionals here create, but it certainly gives us a sense of pride of ownership.
I do have a quick question about the bolts holding for our rail posts. We used 1/2" hex bolts with a regular washer and nut and I am little concerned that the nuts are going to work loose over time as it seems like some have required some additional tightening already. Its not a problem now, but I fear once we install a fascia around the outside I will no longer have access to the bolt heads to tighten them and if they loosen I will just turn the nut and the whole hex bolt will just spin. Is this something I need to worry about or is anything I should now that I still can?
