The birth of our deck in the backyard

DeckWe needed a new place to drink coffee, eat lunch and write blog posts, so a friend is building a small deck in our backyard.

Decks can add a special quality to daily living allowing us to spend more recreational time in our own yard.  It will be the latest in a series of improvement to our house built in the sixties.

There will be a key transition for one member of our family, our aging Beagle, Snoopy.  She's a creature of habit who is used to going in and out of the house one way. 

Since we've moved in we have made some pretty solid improvements to our home, including a new furnace, new room, new windows.

As our friend builds the deck, the weather goes into the early August heat. It could slow things down.
