Decking the Wagon

I spent the weekend working on the deck.  First I had to secure the crosspieces with lagbolts into the main beam support.

Next I had to mill the oak decking from oak boards a friend gave us.  I milled a simple overlap on the edges to minimize spaces and gaps.

I had enough boards to nail down half the  deck. We nailed down the boards with square nails from a company called Tremont which still make nails like they did 100 years ago.  Now to procure a couple more boards and  finish the deck so we can start working on the walls.
