Finally, after a few years of planning for changing the look under the veranda at the back of our house, we started building the timber deck. It took a few months to build, due of the fact, it was more work than expected and we had only a day (or 2 days max) a week to work on it. But the end result is great, the kids love it, we love it, finally a nice place to sit and relax and to entertain. And also important, a big safe place for the kids to play. The cats love it too, they can sit up on the railing to look over the yard and scan for bugs/mice to hunt, or to look over the fence to annoy the neighbor dogs! A very special thanks to our friend Foxx, for helping me with all the hard parts of the project.
