    It looks great! You’re in the home stretch and then you can enjoy the wedding. And you’ll have the extreme deck all summer.

    Andrew, I’m glad you were able to hold the cord for the sander! Someone’s gotta do it! 🙂
    Seriously, it’s been fun following your project! Great job! Wanna come home this summer and stain our deck and house?
    Love you,
