deck underway

And a good bit done, too. What startet out as a 16'x14' deck is now a 16'x16' deck. I knew 14' deep was going to be pretty large, but 16' is quite gigundus. It turned out Lowes doesn't carry 14' boards, and well, I wasn't going to cut 2' off every board ;)

I think it's probably about halfway finished. We have the crossbeams and deck boards down for almost the entire deck; we have some finish work to do on the end (I'm going to knock the corners off a bit to make the deck look 'prettier'), the stairs to put in place, and the railing to put up.

I'll have pictures up in a couple days, so you'll just have to come by if you want to see it (not that I mind).
