I posted a couple of months ago (here) about our six years in the waiting project, our deck. I am here to report that it is finally finished. Our son Dustin along with hubby Jim built this off the back of the house. Although projects usually take longer than expected and more money than budgeted this one didn't do too bad. Of course if I had my way it would have been done in half the time and for half as much money but who am I kidding? I live in the real world.
THIS IS THE UPPER LEVEL WHICH IS 10'X10' AND WHERE I PLAN ON PUTTING THE BARBEQUE.
THIS IS THE VIEW FROM THE UPPER DECK ONTO THE LOWER PART.
The deck is on the south side of the house so it gets sun pretty much all day, that is why we have the dining canopy over the table.
This is the view from east to west.
We can't forget this little cutie pie. She spent lots of time here while her daddy worked on the deck.

Here is the view from the other end
Now hopefully we will get a nice long Indian summer so we can enjoy it before the rains set in.
NEXT PROJECT: Planting flowers and shrubs around the base of the deck but that will have to wait until next year.
