Just the Beginning…

June 21, 2008

Today construction began on our deck! After a couple hours out at Lowes selecting and paying for the lumber (and ordering a new set of french doors to replace the old broken sliding doors that open to the patio), Glenn and our good friend Steve Gifford got to work on doing some of the preliminary framing work. At least now we have the main outline of the deck so that I can visualize the end product much better than before.

Tomorrow they plan to put in the actual posts (no, we are not going to have our deck supported by those 2x4s) and some other support beams. I can’t explain how exciting it is to see this project finally moving from idea to reality! As long as the weather cooperates, we should have the deck completed (or at least mostly so) in about a week!
