Deck is done!  
Well, as done as it can be before I paint it. Electrician comes this week to hook up the lights for it also.

Took this one prior to work starting. Poor house, it looks so bare at the back.

Back pre deck (480 x 360)

One week in and the bare bones of the deck are in place:

back one week in (480 x 360)

After two weeks, with no railings yet:

Back two weeks in (480 x 360)

Completion! All but the painting now; handrails and posts to be painted still, followed by the staining of the floor.

back finished (480 x 360)

Just in time for summer! I'm that pleased with it. I've been meaning to do this ever since I bought the place - eight years ago.

On the list of things to do - repaint the bottom half of the house to match the railings. I've cashed in a heap of credit card rewards points to buy a paint sprayer which should make the job a lot easier.

It looks great ;-)

Summer? Already?
Here, yesterday, temps were around 28-29C.
In mid-September!

It's been a great summer this year!

Sounds like you're having very similar temperatures to us, although it's only early spring here. I can just see myself, though, sitting out on the deck, drink in hand, enjoying the breeze... lovely.

I've really enjoyed my deck this year.
But it's coming to an end : morning temps are now in the single digits range :-(

It looks wonderful and will be a lovely spot to sit out.

Here, the trees are beginning to turn for Autumn but the temperatures are still in the low 90s.

Thank you! :D

I'm surprised the trees are starting to change colour already if the temps are still that high; always thought it must have been the temperature that triggered the change. Not too many deciduous trees where I am as they just aren't the same. I did have a beautiful liquid amber when I was living in a cooler climate, and loved seeing the leaves turn to crimson before falling. That is one thing to be said for a cololer climate - beautiful autumn colours.
