The deck is pretty much finished. The hand rails for the short stairs are almost done . . not quite.
Vince and his friend are out getting wood. They came by to drop off a load and the friend was looking at the boards and he was surprised at how nice they looked. Vince told him the guy has been picking through lumber at Lowe’s for the better part of three weeks to get the better boards. I’d hate to be doing a big project these days.
The guy is so ready to be done here. He was hoping to stain the deck today but it’s been looking like rain all day and is supposed to rain tomorrow. I think he’ll finish up here by Friday except for staining the deck, and he needs to go on to another job and he’ll come back here once the wood dries. Good luck with that this time of year.
That picture was taken from the deck. I can’t get a good roof picture from below.
That stain is the color we’re using for the deck – for all the wood. We’ll have a fan and Vince says a light in the fan. I’d also like to have lights at each end of the center beam but . . we’ll see how that works out.
This is what it will look like from the inside.
It’s going to be quite useful but I’m so ready to get it all done.
