Tammy and I decided that one of the things that the new house was missing was a ridiculously large deck. Since the deck on the west side of the house had been enclosed by the previous owner, there was a definite lack of deck space.
My son's roommate is a very talented carpenter, who has done this type of construction before, so I immediately imposed on him to ramrod the project. And, after three long days of intense effort, we had a truly stunning, ridiculously large deck.
Very special thanks to my son, Dylan, and "the man", Brian Richey.
