Back at Deni/Courtney's home, I drove off in my truck to collect Paulette, Karen and Jarred (Karen's son) who was back from school. It was a short, 10 minute drive to Karen's Edmonton home.

Back at Deni/Courtney's home, we called it a night and, once I post this blog, it's back to deck building for me. The deck is being built to Edmonton City building codes and is covered by the renovation building permit that was obtained to make all of the home improvements to the house. That permit closes at the end of June. The home renovations are close to completion and with the deck finished, Deni can call for a final inspection. That's the goal.
The Friday forecast calls for a dry day - intermittent clouds with sunny breaks - followed by several concurrent sunny days over the weened and into early next week. That bodes well for completing the deck surface, building the hand rails and installing the step rails and steps. While I am working on the deck, Deni will spend the weekend completing the install of doors, casings and final baseboards.
If our work project is completed (as it should be) by Sunday evening, I plan to drive back home on Monday.
Enough said. Owen is ready for some early morning play time and after that, I'm outdoors to build.
Thanks for dropping by.
