Weekend Warriors

Needless to say, it was falling apart and everytime someone walked on it I felt like we needed to have them sign a liability waiver.

Wayne and I spent a day doing this:

After all of that we ended up with this:

By the next day we had this:

Now we just need some railings!! We saved the wood that was savable for other projects

and the rest of it will be enjoying a nice, cozy campfire.

Do you suppose I could borrow Wayne for a long weekend? ;) We just have a few things to do like weeding the yard and putting in ceiling fans. Oh and if there's time maybe we'll re-caulk the bathtub. :)
