Mike and I have been working on outdoor projects when the weather allows. Been so windy lately, it has put a halt on some projects.
The biggest project is the making of the big pergola (framework pictured above) along the back of the house. Only have to paint about 40 boards!! Sheesh. But Mike did switch gears (while paint dries) and put up a lovely railing around the deck consisting of redwood lumber. There are built in benches now surrounding the deck and I love just hopping out there with the phone, magazine and/or wine just to veg a bit. Did I say I love wood?! Lovely grain on this redwood. Mike plans to make a built in table in the corner where you see that temporary log stand.
