The first level of the deck is bolted down and ready for dining upon.
Mike laid out the deck boards on Monday so they could dry out and Frank had hoped to get them all stained this week before they were installed. But, of course, it rained all week. So, they’ll be stained later. In the meantime, we can have our meals outside in the back now, with a beautiful view of concrete mountain. This week the second story should take shape and we may even get some railings!
