At long last it’s done! The beloved husband took some shots of the deck which were better than anything I took. Thanks to all you great people encouraging my sanity during this project. In the end it is worth it but I was way beyond my patience level.
Looking at the deck with the pergola.
Same section from doorway of house
Other side with privacy screen. That rounded pergola in the distance is my next door neighbor’s pergola. The wood surrounding our privacy screens needs to be stained with a second coat of driftwood gray. Our siding is gray so I chose to stick with that.
This is one of the piles of trash we looked at for 8 weeks! There were others scattered around the yard.
More on the people who worked on this to follow. It was certainly a motley crew!
