I need to frame in a removable section on my deck to allow acces to my outside water faucet. Does anyone know where there might be some photos posted on how to do this? Thanks

I've done that a number of times, though usually it was for access to a drain. It's a simple process.

Finally getting to the point where I'm going to start laying the decking. Question on cutting for the access. Is it better to precut the decking or can it be cut after boards are in place? Seems like you would get a snugger fit on end by precutting? I did see 1 where they used a hack saw to cut for thin line after in place. Any opinions on this? I have spot like this photo with just 2 boards and a larger section involving 7 boards. Thanks
