What’s the project this time, well…fixing up, not redoing (like everything else) but fixing up our backyard for a friends wedding. Yep, you heard me right, a wedding in our backyard! Drew and I and even Justin have been hard a work trimming bushes and trees, laying new seed for the grass and looking at beautiful flowers to place in pots for that beautiful look for a spring wedding. But what is the “BIG”project that we have started??? Yep, start laughing because I am! I guess I should say that we are going to “attempt” to build a 16ft by 10ft shaded deck by the pool area. The picture really looks great and I can’t wait to see it in our backyard just off the cool decking by the pool.
Drew and a friend, Roger (our Shasta Pools superintendent) have already dug 8 3ft holes. I wish I had a video of the 2 of them with the pole digger that I could attach to this. I would have everyone rolling on the floor laughing hysterically!!! I was in the house with the window opened listening to them yell at each to “push down harder”, “pull it out of the ground” and “Iâ€™m trying to!” with a lot of groaning. All I could do to help them was giggle (I donâ€™t think that they were too happy with me). I did grab water and tried not to laugh too hard when I delivered it to them. All in all they did a great job and now we are ready for the cement and lumber (which at this time has still not been ordered). This isnâ€™t just lumber you can pick up at The Home Depot or Loweâ€™s….no; you have to go to a lumberyard. I guess we will have to fax in our order and then once again borrower my uncleâ€™s truck with the flatbed trailer to go and get it! Also, they are only open Mon-Fri from about 6ish to 3ish, so it looks like I am on my own. I guess this is where you start laughing at me….me and all my lumber (Iâ€™ll be sure to have a picture for all of you)!
We will keep you updated on the process and hopefully none of us will end up with to many bumps and/or bruises!!
