So let me introduce to you...

...the new deck.

As promised yesterday, here are some shots of our new outdoor living space.




Now we just need to get some deck furniture and landscape the rest of the backyard.

But first, I have to say how happy I am with the guys who built our deck -- Don and Mike's Home Improvements. Although it may appear otherwise, our deck was not a simple project, but Don and Mike (and their assorted helpers) took all the complications in stride and gave us exactly what we were looking for. This project has also been the talk of the pathways around here, with many of our neighbors stopping on their walks to admire their work and inquire about their services. If you're looking for honest, hardworking, and reasonable contractors (who are friendly to boot!), I highly recommend Don and Mike.

(In the interest of full disclosure, they're not giving me anything to say such nice things.)

Stay tuned for an announcement about the first cook out!

That's an awesome deck. I particularly like how the tree pops up in the middle.

Glad the tree was not taken out. Will it get enough water?

Ever since you got that new job, this blog has sucked.

The deck looks fantastic & the tree thing is very cool. But I echo the earlier question - will it get enough water?

Water concern: The roots go out beyond the deck now, and there's room for water between the deck and the tree and the boards themselves. Plus, we have friends who have a similar set up. So, probably.

Suckiness concern: I'm pretty sure this blog has sucked for much longer than just two weeks.

You are talking about how good Don and Mike is. Are you lining up a job there too?

You've made a big change in your life; you've been completely honest about it, and people are taking pot-shots at you. I admire your forthrightness.
