New Swing Set

It took a bit longer than I expected but I finally got the swing set put together. This thing is sturdy and build to last! I am so glad we went with a build it yourself model from the local lumber-yard vs a kit from one of the big box stores. We wanted one that could support everyone from our 10 month old all the way up to me. 🙂

Overall it took one full day of cutting and assembling and then a few hours here and there after work to put the finishing touches on it.

More Column Work and Swing Set Wood

We had a super busy weekend. Along with Mother’s Day, we spent most of Saturday cutting, mitering, and nailing up some more trim pieces on the kitchen pass through project. More on that later.

And if we didn’t have enough projects going on, we finally settled on a swing set for the kids. Not just any swingset though. A real one that is going to require cutting before it can be assembled! No shortcuts here!

Ashley also spent a good part of her special day beautifying our front and back yards with this years flower selection.

A great weekend and we are looking forward to what the week will bring us.
