Planning started summer of 2020...
Lots of mess!
3 minute timelapse of the build
Yes (for now...)
I still have to finish the wiring of the plugs, switches and lights, but that will have to wait for a warm day, or the spring.
After a few pairs of gloves, worn out jeans, ratty t-shirts, one dead drill, quite a few borrowed tools (thanks Wayne, Deryck, Dawn, Noah, Dad and Scott), only a few cuts, bruises, hit thumb (once!), spilled screw box, spilled wood sealer (d'oh!), wrong cuts (I was able to re-use the piece), one or two swears, many gallons of sweat, endless trips to the hardware store (I love Rona's return policy!), it's time to enjoy the deck!
Throughout it all, Trish was working the gardens and keepng us fed! Now, we love the ability to walk out onto the deck and use the BBQ. It still doesn't seem real. It was a long summer of work, but I wish we did it 15 years ago! We'll have to stay here for another 15 to make it all worth it!
See you on the deck next year!
