Starting on the Deck

While on furlough for his job with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Shawn decided to start working on our much needed deck. We've talked about it since we moved in 4 1/2 years ago and finally decided what we wanted. Shawn went to Home Depot and purchased cement and some posts, then went to the rental store for an auger and cement mixer. The next day, the government decided to start back up. OF COURSE! We are slowly making progress.
 Shawn got the eight holes dug with help from Kolsen and me.

 They had to be 5 feet deep to be below the frost line.
All of the kids were out helping at one time or another during the day.
The amount of muddy shoes we ended up with at our house was crazy.

  1. It's going to be fabulous! Maybe Eric and Bruce should fly out for a weekend to help finish it up!
