All Hands on Deck!!


OK, OK! Sorry for the bad pun ;) BUT..there is a purpose for the pun! Our deck is finally finished! Here are some pics of the work in progress! I knew almost nothing about deck or any other kind of home construction before this project and found the whole process to be very interesting!









Here is our "before" picture..just a bare yard with steps!













And here is the deck after the framing is complete!






















now add some steps!









And there you go, the finished product!







and of course, every deck needs a fern, with a lobster in the corner... YES..that's a lobster..whatsamatta, you got a problem with lobsters? LOL





oh and I can't forget the sheep ;) He's obviously here for the clambake as he brought the corn! I wonder if that's what the lobster showed up for too ;)

Robin...that's a gorgeous deck! Woohoo, it's finally done! The furniture looks pretty too, I couldn't see a close up of that though. Love the lobster...I could totally hear your voice saying "whatsamatta, you got a problem with lobsters?"

LOL, Robin! Your deck looks great! I esecially like the lobster. Last year, for my birthday, my sister bought me a huge bowl shaped like a lobster. I was like, "What occaision would I possibly use this for?" but I like it anyway!

Great deck, Robin! Looks like some mighty fine bbq's will be happening. Love the homie touches too. It makes it so much more welcoming. Good job...and now you get to enjoy it. But hurry. Don't you have bad humidity in NJ? I couldn't be outside in that weather or I'd look like Rosanna Rosanna Danna. (Not that you invited me. I'm just sayin') :o)

Congratulations on the deck! It's made out of the exact same stuff as ours! We lived here 5 years before we finally added a deck. Guess my patience finally paid off! Love the sheep too! :0)
