|Completed as of 7:00 pm Saturday evening.|
|The finished stage before the rains....|
|Completed deck floor....|
|Steps are secured and the posts are ready for carriage bolts.|
|Owen donned a cool little tool belt style T-shirt and joined us on the deck project. He dropped by often to inspect our progress.|
|Our very last task was to lift the barbecue onto the deck and.....while enjoying a well earned libation....some mighty fine steaks were on the grill to re-fuel tired bodies.|
I plan to help Deni install doors in their newly renovated basement. Once done with that, I am planning a visit with other family members and, following a good night's sleep, I will make the drive back to Langley, BC, leaving bright and early on Monday morning.
Deni calculated that, without my help, his deck project would have required four full weekends to complete. Now that it is built - and that their inside home renovation project nears completion too - they will have more free time to enjoy a summer of travel, visitors and more. I was happy to help out.
And the bonus? I got to spend some quality time with our favourite little Alberta grandson, Owen.
|We shared some fun times - from early morning, till he went to sleep for the night. This is one happy little fella!|
Thanks for dropping in.
