Woo hoo! We have a walking surface! We have a place for our table and grill. And soon we'll have a mat to place under our firepit. Daryl went out of town until after Memorial Day, and when he returns we plan on building some railings. Some more photos:
I ripped off the trim of the back door (there was water damage at the bottom of the frame) and we are planning to just replace the entire door when Daryl gets back. We scrubbed the siding to clean up the mildew, and with the table and chairs out we eat meals outside, drink wine after work, and hull strawberries that were picked from Shelton's farm.
