Making the Grade

The door is finished and installed. We still need to trim it out and finish the brickwork outside, but that will all come when the kitchen is finished. Right now, it leads nowhere because the deck isn’t complete, but soon, very soon, it will lead right onto our new deck.

The deck itself is starting to progress. The guys had to spend a lot of time leveling the grade so that it would drain away from the house and towards the creek. The plants and shrubs had to come out, lots of digging and measuring, and finally, the footings were poured in concrete. The house may blow down, but the deck is going nowhere. The next time there is a tornado, I’m heading for the deck.
