Hexagonal Picnic Table built for dock at lake. Family has grown with grandkids so this table is 8.5 feet wide at widest point and should seat 10 to 12. Also added 10X10 off set umbrella that will cover table and swing over some adirondack chairs built last year.

Cedar swing in boathouse is another project that I am ready to start a couple more of the swings.

The last picture is from the lower deck that is 14X60. My two sons and I bult the lower deck, walk way and docks when they were teenagers (they are in their 30’s now). They learned how to frame a floor system, set posts, cut stairs and deck the tops. I contracted out building the boathouse part. The front part floats with the lake level.

The heck with the picnic table (just kidding).... let’s have a tour of the rest of the place! Looks like quite the weekend getaway.
