The other half of the joists have now been screwed to the brackets, a relatively quick and easy job.
After 2 more days of raking I still haven't finished clearing the house site, but I am nearly there!
While I was sitting there quietly sorting my rocks, a pair of yellow-tailed black cockatoos flew low overhead and landed in the nearby banksia tree.
Meanwhile Josh found the brackets which need screwing on next, appropriately called 'top hats'. He spent the afternoon bending them into shape so now they are ready to screw the joists to the bearers.
