I am just going to take a few moments today to brag about my hubby. If you remember back a few years ago I had a hankering for a enclosed porch/sunroom. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to our home and move an hour south, an hour I hear you scream. Well yes, just and hour to save my hubby commuting two hours a day. We missed him, and he missed us. So this works, we have more time together and we live so close to his work he even comes home for lunch most days.
So of course this move meant that we left our nice sun-room and our beautiful community summer pool behind. These were some of our favorite things. Our current town has an amazing swim team and an indoor pool which we love, but the outdoor pool is just that a pool, no zero entry and a lot of people.
So we got a pool. For the last three years we have enjoyed it and this year we wanted to step up the enjoyment so hubby has built a deck. The extra awesome park is he built it (mostly) out of wood that was given to him. Insert short story - hubby saw an ad on craigslist. A man was selling his deck if you came and got it. So hubby rounded up the big kids, bought some work gloves and off they went. The bonus part of the story was that the man was so impressed with their work ethic and refused to charge them anything. They went twice and got a lot of wood, which was perfect for the base and frame of our pool deck. We did buy new boards for the top - man wood is expensive!
The men (hubby and Jam) are out finishing off some new railing as I type but I wanted to add a few shots of their work, Boo is not in any of the photos - I did that on purpose, what teenage girl wants to be immortalized in their work scruffs :)
