weekend update...

When last we you looked this what what the back of the house looked like..

and the right side...
This past weekend we experienced 90-92 degree heat...so what to do?  Go to the pool? no...  Sit in the AC and sew? no... Work outside in the heat?  SURE!!  Why not?

116 boards   $470.00
696 deck screws  $25.00

throw in 2 old people...and this is what you get...

left side....  That's the sun porch up there..
and right...  Sorry about the lawn mower..I had just finished cutting the front grass..and was waiting for the back to dry a bit more before cutting it...luckily I didn't have to do it.  I left to attend the String Concert for a grandson and Rich cut while I was gone...
and finished...almost...We Rich will be adding a sliding barn door in that big gaping hole and it will be painted to match the deck..but that's for next summer.  You have to let the treated wood dry out before you can paint it...yea for that...

I have decided that I just might be getting a bit old to work outside in the sun all day...

Your not "old"... look at what you got done!
Working in the sunshine is the pits, but look at it this way... you probably survived sunstroke and/or heat stroke and got a bunch of stuff done. Probably dropped a few pounds (not that you needed it... you can just pass that loss to me o.k.?)and although your tired, hot and probably somewhat sticky... well you did a great job!
It does look nice. More finished.

It looks great, I've decided working outside in the sun is for the birds.
