Getting it done- On deck

Filed under: Plans — by Alison @ 3:45 pm

The deck is in! Our contractor called Monday night, while we were in Tremblant, to let us know he had done some rescheduling and he could start work on our deck Tuesday.

When we left for a weekend away our deck looked like this:

Note the rotted wood. It was also bouncy!

Here you can see the jagged edges, and exposed nails.

And today it looks like this:

Very sturdy



Safe steps down

I think it’s great. It’s big and square and safe. The contractors did an amazing job in the heat. Once the deck is stained and we’ve fixed up the plants, I’m planning a BBQ/dance party.

The list:

  • Replace deck
  • Replace bathroom sink
  • New front door
  • Drapes for front windows and dining room
  • Fix family picture wall
  • Clean up vegetable patch
  • Plant something in vegetable patch
  • Create organized craft cupboard – supplies purchased
  • Arrange child care for the fall
  • Use restaurant gift certificates
  • Book hotel for U2 concert
  • Book hotel in Montreal
  • Book hotel in Tremblant
  • Get plans drawn up for kitchen reno project
  • Stain pretty new deck
  • Landscape around pretty new deck
  • Host BBQ/dance party
