For a couple of years now, we have been wanting to put up a little deck, gazebo type structure in our back yard. We have a lovely tree lined back yard that is hotter than the blue flames of a fire in the afternoon and early evening. Our back deck/BBQ area has no shade and gets the full afternoon sun. So, we decided, why not take to the corner of the yard and "tuck" a structure in the trees that could act as a picnic/campfire area. We put this off from last year because we took 3 major trips and didn't want to spend the money on this project.
As you can see, our construction team is comprised (mostly) or our son, Josh and a few pieces of Randy's prized farm equipment. There have been some "guest" laborers (which will be shown in a future blog), some daring heights and some awkward moments. We have changed a few things, added some features and mostly can't wait until it is finished. There have even been several "what the heck were we thinking" conversations. But, all in all, I think (hope) it will be something the family will use and appreciate in the years to come.
Since my computer is downloading as the speed of a snail 500, I will have to continue this post at a later time. . . Stay tuned!
