Goodbye, Old Deck
Our plans are eventually to lay a brick patio, and build a pergola coming off of the house... hopefully an attractive and welcoming place, with partial shade where we can sit outside. Somewhere we'll have a fire pit, and the scraggly garden you see in the above picture will be removed and rebuilt into two raised gardens over by the fruit trees.
We live on a very limited budget, and so this project may take quite some time to finish, but that's fine with us! Proverbs 13:19 says, "...desire accomplished is sweet to the soul:" and so even though it is slow, it is still rewarding to see the project being accomplished little and by little.
Here's a picture of Carl, one quarter of the way through the deck demolition. I'll have to post updates as the project progresses!
