We finally finished the deck! To date this was the biggest project that we have tackled at our new home. It didn’t help that it was almost always 100 degrees or above everyday that we worked on it. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Here is what the deck looked like […]
Did a few projects around the house this weekend. One of which I will post later on this week (hint – its a sandbox with cover). One of the biggest projects and most time consuming ones was buying and assembling our kid’s new trampoline. The time consuming part was because I removed all of the […]
