My Birthday Present
For my birthday this past spring, my hubby got me a new larger gazebo for our deck to replace this old one - along with some new deck furniture.
Little did he know what a HUGE undertaking he took on for himself :) I had realized that we would end up using the new gazebo about as much as the old one (in other words - NOT often!) unless we made a change.
We needed to build rails all the way around the deck. You see, if we are OUTside, and our Girls (the dogs) are INside, they sit at the patio door and whine.
If we let them out... they race all around the yard like maniacs and I have to stand in the yard to be sure no one gets hurt. So I am STILL not enjoying the deck!
But... if we let them out onto the deck with us, and keep them there, they will be happy because they are out with us and I won't have to worry about any "whippet NASCAR" accidents :) At least... that's what I'm HOPING for!
I'm REALLY looking forward to this! I can't wait to bring my bearmaking outside on those beautiful days! (we have wireless internet too, so hubby can bring his laptop outside)
We've gotten LOTS done. We should be able to get the gondola up this Saturday!! Here's what progress we've made so far. I'm pretty sure I'd like Bob to enclose the bottom of the deck to keep the furry critters out... but I know that will be a pain in the neck!
