First of all I have to say a huge thank you to both my parents and to the Hanson's for coming over and helping out with the deck building. I couldn't have gotten it completed without you guys!
Here are a few snapshots from the construction site:
Maddie ready to get building!
Grandpa Bob by the workbench.
Laying out the foundation for the deck.
Brad helped layout the decking while Grandma Sue tested the decking.
The (mostly) finished deck. Still have some stairs to finish, the last end board and facia to put on, and some more screws in the decking (we ran out, hence why it is only mostly finished, need to buy more at Lumbermens today). But the hard part is finished and we will be able to enjoy our deck for the whole summer now!
I look forward to having people over soon to test out the new deck (and hopefully there will be a new grill to go on the new deck, and some new deck furniture as well, shortly).
