In March Brian took on the big job of adding a deck. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible in March and April. We got 12+ inches of rain in April, so up until just a few weeks ago, his plans were on hold. We were pretty busy in May and June so it was hard for Brian to find enough time to get it done.
Here's an after picture:
Here is a before picture of the cement slab we had - nothing exciting.
Here is Day 1: Brian and Todd drilling holes for the footers.
Brian's parents came down for the weekend and his dad helped him frame it out.
And finally: The finished Deck. We are going to add seating under the arbor at some point.
I wanted to get a few pictures at dusk because it's really pretty sitting outside then.
