We are finally getting around to building our back deck.
Four years ago when we were building our home, the deck is something that we decided to not do at the time. The money (and time) was used for other things in the home and on our homestead.
Over the years, it was two things that never seemed to line up for us to do this DIY project...
One or the other (and sometimes both) seemed to be an issue. Well...we are diving into it!
We are building a deck.
Now I know what you're probably thinking...
the bird bath on top of the aerator system and the dog box look just fine right? ;-) Ha!
The plan (which is in our heads) has been discussed and decided...
(No more looking at that ugly aerator system - we will be building up as close to it as possible.)
It will be a two level deck.
The top section will be 10' x 25'. The lower level will measure 12' x 25'.
It will have two sets of steps off the lower level.
Hubby is designing a pergola which will not only be beautiful, but will help two fold...it will help shade the deck, and cut down on the sun that blinds us inside at supper time.
The work has begun...
The tool box and tent have been set up in the work area.
The lumber has been delivered.
The siding and steps have been removed.
The ledger board has been put on the house.
The area has been squared and marked.
The first post has been set.
This project, as most around here, is going to be a DIY.
We (and when I say we, you know I mainly mean Handy Hubby) will be working on this in our spare time.
What?? We have spare time?!?!
I'm already arranging furniture in my head to maximize our view of the chickens/garden area and of the creek/wooded area.
I hope you follow along and enjoy the adventure.
