The construction of the DIY deck with bench seats is finally finished.
It is always a joy to use a car jack in a project that doesn't involve replacing a wheel.
This was the last piece of timber in the decking project.
We are all set now to enjoy the spoils of our toils. A stain is still needed but not until the timber has time to leach out a few more tannins.
After almost five months since this DIY Deck with built in bench seats began, it is finsihed... Or so I thought. I felt like a character imagined by Joseph Conrad when my wife (Deck Concept Designer) said, "I don't really consider it finished until that pathway is done".
"The horror, the horror!"
Plans are afoot to construct a decking pathway to link the deck with the front porch.
