During the dayThe Deck is completed.
Well, completed enough that I've stopped freaking out about it.
Completed enough that we had a deck-warming party last weekend.
The best part- I didn't get a single bug-bite during the party. That means the deck is a success!
There are still some minor things, like paint touch-up and door handles, to finish. But for now, we're on the deck, waiting for a cool summer breeze.
