.just about finished.

Jaron has been getting his new website up and running and took a few photos of the house for it on the weekend. Made me remember that I have never posted pictures of the finished deck. It was a long process, with Jaron working on it by himself every spare minute he had after work and on weekends for four solid months, but it was well worth it. The perfect place for the kids to play and ride their bikes and is an awesome extension of our house when we open the sliding doors. If we ever build again, a big deck will be top on the list of "must haves". We are really looking forward to warmer weather so that we can enjoy it again.



The winter months have seen us doing lots of landscaping. Again, a slow process when we only have Saturdays to devote to it. But we are happy that in a week or two it should all be over! The grass has been sown and is growing nicely, we planted a small front garden and some fruit trees out the back last weekend and now only have to spread bark over the garden beds and do some planting around the back of the house. Bring on summer...with a nice big deck and landscaped yard to play in we are going to have some serious fun this year!

the deck is so cool - such a great place for the kids (and adults in Summer). Will be so nice to have everything finished off this summer so you can just enjoy all that hard work you put into it a year ago.

Absolutely stunning. I can't stop staring. Your husband did that?!! Did he design your whole house? I'd love to see more.
