Not too much to say about this one…

Our backyard isn’t terribly large and has a downward slope to it… so we decided to do a little weekend project (OK – 2 or 3 weekends by the time we got ourselves outside in the Texas heat) to give ourselves a little more useable space for entertaining and relaxing.

So between my in-laws and I, we threw this together without too much headache.

Very nice!

This is a “practical” woodwork solution that will provide many enjoyable occasions.

that was the easiest deck I’ve ever built—easy as 1, 2, 3.
First the frame and next thing you know, we are sitting down and enjoying it :)

The space looks So much larger now. I’d have thought that a deck would make it look smaller.. but it didn’t. Good design.

Looks like a great place to spend a summer evening. As my grandmother always said “It’s porch sittin weather.”
