We Are Ready For Summer

We decided our Spring/Summer project would be to add on/update our deck. We found after living here for a year that we wanted to be outside more eating dinner and etc. so what better way to to that than with a deck.

Here is our old deck
We decided to use Rhino Decking so that we would not have the yearly upkeep with wood.
Andy did most of the work himself, but we were very thankful for the help that we did get. Thank you Dave, Jason, Heath, and Josh. I tried the best I could with deck removal and staining, but when it came to actually putting in the boards I was a little worried about using the drill and messing something up.

Andy and Jason putting some of the boards on
The deck turned out amazing and we were out there almost the entire day today.

The New Deck
The decorated table. I found the top (metal) table mats at Pier One. They are so helpful in holding down the actual table mats.

I just had to share this photo of Oscar...as you can tell he was exhausted from all the work
We hope to see you for a Summer dinner

I love the deck it looks awesome! What an upgrade! It looks amazing and I love the gazebo, if only we lived closer I could come over and check it out in person.

The deck looks great. Andy is getting so handy these days. I know that you will get a lot of use out of it this summer. I hope to see it some day.
