Hard to believe that the last update I posted for my deck build project was back in October of last year. I wish I could post that even though I hadn’t been posting about it, the deck was finished and we were simply to busy enjoying outdoor cooking and cocktails on the new deck to post about it, but sadly that isn’t the case.
It isn’t like I haven’t been doing things though, but working on the deck hasn’t been part of what I have been up to.
Work on the deck sort of came to an end last fall when the weather started getting bad. I didn’t think much about it through the winter and when spring rolled around we got busy doing other projects around the property, we took a family vacation to Yellowstone and the deck simply took a back seat to many other things.
The good news is that thanks to the delay I have re-designed the deck some, I think for the better, and will be building in some covered storage for the smokers and grills at the same time. You can see from the image above that the back wall of that storage will be the old fence posts that I had intended to cut off.
I probably won’t be moving really fast with this, but hopefully it will be steady progress as time and budget allow.
