I framed and placed the concrete forming tubes into the footing holes for the new deck. Some of the footings will be taller, since we are raising the grade near the house foundation. This was approved by the our local building inspector.
Amada and I mixed over 3000lbs of concrete and carefully filled each forming tube.
Later, I used the mason lines and a plumb bob to mark the placement of the J-bolts for the deck posts.
