DIY deck building in Hawaii

Looking north towards the driveway.

Hurricane Douglas July 2020.

No major hit or damage, from Hurricane Douglas in Hawaii, but always a bit scary not knowing what might happen.

A couple Beautiful Hawaiian Axis deer on the hill across the valley.


I did a lot more work on the RV. It is Very nice to see the old rotting RV turned into something SO wonderful!

Although.. Demoing an RV is very hard work! Nothing is straight. There are bolts protruding here and there... Rotting supports. Holes... Nothing to pound into... I am very happy to be done with that!

RV demo after

I put in a roof over the whole thing, put in a front patio, and painted it! I had tried several coatings on the roof previously, but they never lasted with the heat and rain.... So a permanent roof was the way to go!

RV roof over the top

The week after I finished the roof, was when we had the hurricane warning.... so I bought tie down straps and put them over the top.... I didnt want the roof to blow off!

driver area

I wanted to move the main bed from over the driver area to below it.

Main RV bedroom and kitchen

I cut down the mattress to fit, and added a moveable bench seat that would extend the bed length when needed.

I put in bamboo flooring, bought on clearance sale, and combined 2 salvaged gallons of paint to make the green wall paint!

RV redo bathroom

The bathroom turned out nice too..

A pig snuck into the yard again, so I had to fix the fencing. They can push their way over it, and under it...
