I am putting yellow pine log siding on my home. I am also putting on a deck of the same pine. My question is...after putting on the ledger board for the deck will I need to go ahead and put on the deck before I finish the siding or can I finish the siding and then do the deck? The depth of the siding and ledger board are about the the same so I was conserned that the ledger board would not stick out enough for the deck to rest on.

You can do it either way, but I would not build the deck out of regular pine. It will rot. You need to use treated pine or the new plastic lumber.
