June 25 - July 9, 2009 Deck Phase of Project

The completed deck with the railing to be added sometime in the future. We literally finished installing the metal roofing in a light rain but for a change did not have to tarp the roof. The rain continued into the evening into the next day. The deck was christened with a liquid libation under a dry roof.

One poplar tree had to be cut down to accomodate the overhang of the deck roof. A rope attached to the skidsteer felled the tree in the proper direction.
