So, my husband took a week off in late July to build a deck. A week, ha! He got most of the framing done that week (which was the hardest part anyway), leaving the rest to be finished on the evenings and weekends through August. He did most of the cutting and nailing, I did most of the staining. Thems a lot of wood. We still need to put some trim on, but I’m calling it done. Behold!
I really like the wrap-around steps. Really leaves it open to the yard. Now we just need to get some furniture. Unfortunately, summer’s almost out, and patio furniture is getting hard to find. But hey, at least we have a beautiful deck!
