Our most recent project around the house was putting in a much-needed deck in the backyard. We considered doing it ourselves, but since I wouldn’t be able to help much (if at all), we figured it would take DH many weekends where we could be enjoying our summer instead. So, with that, we put together a design, got a couple quotes, and hired a contractor. 
Though the price was more than we were planning on, and definitely more than if we did it ourselves, having it professionally done in about a week was well worth it.

Fig. 1: Before. Not much to look at other than the horribly crooked cement stairs.

Fig. 2: Finished product!
Fig. 3: First BBQ meal on the deck – many, many more to come!
The next big project on our list is the attic. With my maternity leave coming up, that probably won’t be for a couple of years, but I’m sure there will be other smaller projects to write about.

  1. Looks fantastic! Can't wait to finally get started on our yard, we just need the rain to hold off so everything can dry out.


  2. Thanks MJ! I hope your place dries out quickly so you can get started.


  3. That looks great!! I love the railing you chose.


  4. That looks fantastic!

    We still haven't managed to finish assembling our BBQ. It's been half done since May-24. So pathetic.
