The deck, she is done.

Bryan and I kicked major ass and got the final piece of decking in place just after 10:00 tonight. You don't know how damn good this feels, to have the roof over the brerezeway once again whole and not leaking.

Bear in mind, this is no ordinary deck. This is more of an addition to the house. And it is a rock-solid piece of work. And it has a roof, kind of.

And Bryan does some really good work.

We had some really long days. I think we each put in easily 40 hours already, and all of it hard physical labor. I've basically spent the last three days on the ladder (my calves look like muskmelons), and Bryan was walking on joists for three days.

We got along really well, and I think we had fun.

I may not be able to move in the morning, but it is a satisfying kind of paralysis.
