Project complete!

Day 67/Year 2
The deck is done!!! Woo-hoo!!!!! It was finished today.......just in time to kick off the summer barbecue season. This is my brother-in-law Jack. He is the guy who built the deck. I LOVE the way it came out. Isn't it awesome??????? :-) We have gated off the 2 stairways off the deck, so it is like a big giant playpen for Abby and Rudy.
 We celebrated the finishing of the deck with a Memorial Day barbecue. All American desserts were the order of the pie, watermelon, and red white and blue cupcakes. (There was also a key lime pie, a lemon crunch pie, brownies and vanilla ice cream in case anyone was wondering what was for dessert) **smile Kathleen** :-)
The Specs:
Photo one: Nikon D90, 18-200 mm lens, ISO 640, 1/100, f9
Photo two: Nikon D90, 18-200 mm lens, ISO 200, 1/50, f5.3


  1. The deck looks awesome carol!!
    (and so does the watermelon!!)
    I'll have to come by to see it.
    Happy Memorial Day!!

  2. Stop by anytime Nancy! It really does look much better than the old deck, and this one is even a little bit bigger than the old one. As you can see in the photo, there is a "picture frame" of lighter trex around the outside of the deck which added some extra real estate, and I love how the darker color trex was put it at an angle. It's gorgeous....very happy with it.
