Building the deck

Now that the interior of the apartment is (mostly) complete, it is time to transform the back yard into a more welcoming environment.

We got started early Saturday morning, After clearing the area the frame started going together.

Once it was up on the blocks and leveled,

The planks started to go on.

A brief pause for lunch (mmmm...fried plaintains).

And then back to the planking.

The center section has to be removable for access to the drain in the middle, so I built it as a different piece.

Linnea on the finished deck.

And me enjoying the well-deserved first beer.

Day 2. I decided to add a few features, like a table and chairs.

And some finish work around the front edge.
