This morning we woke to pouring rain. We still had a few things to do, but about noon it started to clear and we were able to get started with the final few things that needed to be done. I got a birthday present last night, it was an electric circular saw. The battery ones were just not quite powerful enough to get through the heavy wet pressure treated wood. Anyway, we got the rail on the set of stairs on this side of the deck. That was the final thing to do. If you look closely, you can see Jeffrey and Chris sitting on the deck. Chris is waving and so happy that we are all done.
Not sure what Jeffrey is up to in this picture, but I think he is admiring the great work that Chris and I did this week!
This is the set of stairs that we built this morning. Last night we laid out the 2 x 10s and drew the lines for cutting the risers, so as soon as the rain quit and the sun shone, we got busy with the new saw and got them cut and they fit perfectly. So that was my sister's and my vacation.
