we spent this past weekend building the structure of what will soon be our beautiful deck overlooking the forest. see those trees? I spend most of the winter mentally holding each and every one of those up during big nasty windstorms. I have to tell you, it is a LOT of work (holding up the trees... oh, and the deck building part too).
anyway, I digress...
our next shipment of wood will be ordered tomorrow. then the deck building will continue.

update: building inspector has come and gone for the foundation inspection. we have been given the go ahead to start framing!!!
we are knee deep into a summer project. we decided to expand our little 10 foot by 12 foot concrete patio to a resounding 375 square foot wood deck. with a pick axe in hand and a jug of sweet tea on the patio table (plus a week of time spent at the county building wrangling a deck permit) we have set out to creating our overlook into the forest.
