Adventures of deck building

The deck is still a work in progress. But it is coming along and looks beautiful. For many of you constant readers you know that my wonderful husband has taken on the project of building us a back deck. He has been working with my father getting the trees, milling it and now making it in to a master piece.

Here is our latest work on it.

First we had all the board brought to us from St. Stephen by my god parents.

Next my god father showed and helped hubby how to put the frame up

Well the frame was being constructed my father in law planed the decking boards. Which took a very long time to do.

Once the frame was up it was time to lay down the decking boards. I got to help do this part. I really liked using the power drill!!! Sorry there are no pictures of that which I know for my dad makes it hard to believe that I really was out there helping.

Here is the decking done on the bottom part of the deck

Once the decking was laid on the bottom half of the deck hubby and I did this chalk line thing and he used the skill saw to cut the boards.

Even though the deck is not quite finished yet it is still beautiful. I can't wait to spend time out there next summer. Hubby has done a wonderful job of learning how to do this kind of project. I am blessed to be married to such a handy man in the making!!!

We will be posting the finishing product later on;we are a couple boards short!!
