Week 40: new deck

Yup, we’re still going.  It’s basically at the stage of just getting a few fixes in things that aren’t working exactly the way they are meant to, adding a few small thing, etc.  I’m hoping, as per usual, that this week is the final week but who knows. We’ll see.

This week brought about our small deck.  It runs a bit past the length of the folding doors to the back garden.  We’ll put our bbq grill on it and, in the summer, can also relax on chairs out back.  While the dog is a big suspicious of the deck right now (scary cat), I have a feeling he’s going to love it.

The deck is not quite yet finished as I forgot to order the edging materials, but that’s something I can diy, so not too worried about it.   It’s made of composite, so won’t need treatment and will last for ages.  It has a look of real wood and goes well with the fencing we have next to it.  Quite pleased.  We got the materials from eDecks.

I look forward to seeing how we use it on a nice, warm sunny day.  I’m imagining sitting with a lovely glass of wine.
