Deck progress

I can’t do much to help Jeff with his heavy work this weekend, but I can do my good wifely duty by bringing him a cold one.

Jeff likes these new cans.

(He looks like he is impatiently waiting for his cold beer.) (He was.)

So here is where we’re at.  Jeff has the L brackets bolted to the house foundation to support the deck.  Now he’s laying out fabric to stop weeds and covering it with a layer of gravel.deck progress

Here is what the top of the brackets look like.deck progress

See this innocent looking downspout?  Jeff took the extender piece off yesterday, and this afternoon when he went to work on that bracket, a SNAKE came out of the downspout.

WHAT THE HELL WAS A SNAKE DOING UP THERE AND HOW DO I CONTINUE TO LIVE HERE WITH THIS INFORMATION?

Good thing I was napping.

Third row of landscaping fabric.  The roll did 3 lengths in front of the house and was only $20 at Lee Valley.deck progress

Short intermission when I was distracted by these beauties.deck progress

I think it hit the spot.

The man we hired with the mini excavator did a really nice job filling in his holes and trenches and smoothing the entire area over. He even spread grass seed on it!
