Work in the garden

We haven't really blogged much on the changes inside the house lately (oops, sorry) which involves painting, lots of painting. Maybe we'll come back to that with some pictures but I wanted to get a bit of info about the changes we're making outside up first.

With the long Easter weekend coming up we were trying to decide what we wanted to do. Some umming and ah'ing later we strangely decided to get the decking underway. With only a week to go we realised we hadn't put much thought into this!

Some trips to a local supplier got some wood delivered Thursday, for the frame. Along the way I also picked up various screws that were likely to be required.

Now let's cut a long story short and just say, cutting, wood treating and screwing ensued until we ended up with this on the Monday evening.

Have to say, it's been fun if not a little testing on my back and shoulders. Never having built a deck before I'm pleasantly surprised at how things are going so far. Ok, so this is only the frame but with the decking wood arriving next Friday I'm hoping things go just as well.

Of course there's something else being built out back atm, but I'll let A tell you about that one.
