Check frames 7 and 8 against the plans, you may have to remake them.

progress pictures and some questions, on the footwalling BOM calls for 3/32 in, while dimensions on plans is 3/16 in, i ordered the 3/32 as you see on picture did not look right, my solution was to glue 2 pcs of the 3/32 material togethe you can see the difference in the picture, 2 things am I corect in this assuntion andis it ok to put in a black pencil as caulking between the 2 3/16in individual pieces or would it detract from overall apperance,,,,also clamped the lower deck clamp in place checking the marks wit a wood story pole, very hard to get it in place, so I dry fitted in and clamped it, now I do not want to take it apart and glue it, I use A Titebond Translucent Glue which sets up rather quickly, so my solution even though I dislike to use it I will put some CA on the top of deck clamp and the frame, just do nolike to use CA and use as little as possible. ALL CRITISIMS ARE WELCOME WILL NOTN LEARN IF SOMEONE SEES SOMETHING WRONG PLEASE SAY SO

Hi Don,
If you look at the Blandford-Part-4-Lower_Deck_Framing_sht1-32 drawing you should be able to see the locations of the LDHN (Lower Deck Hanging Knees) they are along the sides of LDB 2,3 &4 I hope this helps.

Hi Don,
I copied two isometric drawings showing the lodging and hanging knees, this should help you locate the framing of the deck.
