As I said in past articles, the terrace was our dream. Sit on the street, drink a seagull — the pink dream of almost all dacms, gardeners and homeowners. At first glance, everything is simple: put the bars, pinned a terrace board on top, painted with a yacht and sit, drink tea in his pleasure.
The only thing that always strained me is the even ranks of the self-tapping screws, which are most often about the terrace. Yes, galvanized screws do not rust, do not leave dirty traces and divorces, but consider the following:
The terraced board is very thin. Forget about the thickness of 50 or even 45 mm. The generally accepted standard today is 37 mm thickness. If under the board put the lags after 50 cm, then the board starts feeling tangible. Walking along the terrace to the star, like a salary wolf, then even pleasure.
Since the lags need to be put in 30-40 cm, and the board is fixed on both sides, then the slender rows of the screws of the screws look … well, they do not look the fountain. Buy an expensive tree and so sick it is not the smartest act.
Over time, the hats of the screws, no matter how tight and well you did not twist them into the tree, will get out. A tree is a living material, it dries, swells, breathes. Especially in an open place. That’s where the galvanized «traitor» crashes there.
Twink — not a problem!
But, as a rule, you will only learn about the «cradle» after … as it came to him or with all Mahi crashed into his finger. Jump already, know!
For these two reasons, I did not want to mount the deck board with self-draws.
For help in choosing a hidden fastener, I turned to two Google and Yandexes. Both were shown to me on the system of hidden fasteners of the nail. Not being a secret financial magnate, I chose the cheapest option (the bottom in the list).
Only this was not enough. It also needed to buy special spacers in the form of clothespins, special self-tapping screws.
Well, I ordered, paid, brought two large drawers. And what about this good to do, I’m not a builder! The wife walks around the circles and asks:
-Aad, and when will you start?
-And what kind of clothespins?
-Do these are cloves such interesting?
-And for carnations also need screws?
I answer with smart species:
-Weide, start, and you will see everything yourself!
And faster on the Internet, watch something somewhere, why-and in what sequence. Found a roller on YouTube, but everything is so fast and beautiful, that I decided …
Hope Day has come!
The husband went to a public master class in front of the whole family.
I was filmed with questions the whole family! I had to show.
In fact, everything is very simple. Only when four pairs of eyes are watching on you, plus a dog, two cats and even the neighboring pigeons flew to be throked, everything is simple not simple.
How many times have I drove myself with a hammer on my fingers … Uyyyy …. but did not show any type. It’s not a gag of the chapter of the family to jump on a concrete with a finger. The skill appeared only from the third or fourth blow.
You take the nails (a funny name!), I clog it into a lag, screw it to the board with a special self-tapping screw.
And so 10 times in a row.
All board is attached.
Take a new board, attach to the old. In order for the gap between the boards to be perfectly smooth, the coolest robes are applied. They are called spacers and can provide a gap from 1 to 10 mm.
From the side, of course, it looks … A man in shorts and slab, in front of the whole family sticks out the blue clothespins in the board and pounded with a hammer. Circus left … clown remained.
But the final version looks … as the final version. No screws, sticking hats, cracks, chips and scaling.
If you lie on the back and do not pay attention to the edge of the greenhouse, then it is evident that you are not in the Urals, and in a sultry Italy, you lie by the pool at your villa, you are a waiter with cold martini, next to you …
-No, just dream!
And in conclusion, I want to say. Women, lovely women, beautiful women, beloved women, you … Such women. Do not rush a man’s bunch of questions, maybe he does not even know the right answers. Give him time to find out … The Internet does not work well everywhere.
