Its Finished!! – The New Deck

First off let me say a huge Thank You to my Dad for all of the blood, sweat, and time (No, tears right Dad?) into this project!  We most certainly could not have done this without your help!

Last weekend we were able to finish the deck railing and it turned out amazing!  Tim and my Dad worked on the railing in 36 degree weather.. to get this finished before it got even colder!

Since I know you already scrolled past the words to see the pictures.. I will go ahead an reveal the finished (not yet decorated) deck:DSCN4362

Sammy has been stress testing the railing already: DSCN4364  Out enjoying the new deck and fresh air yesterday:  DSCN4368 

The stair railing was most certainly the hardest part!  We will be adding some sort of concrete landing to the bottom of the stairs:DSCN4370 

The nitty gritty, we used trex deck boards for the top of the railing and trex 2X4s with aluminum balusters to create the railing system. DSCN4372 DSCN4373   Tipsy.. not quite as thrilled about the finished project since she can’t leap off of the deck at any point: DSCN4378
