After just a bit of sleep Saturday night, it was time to get back to work.  After all, Opa had to drive home and we were so close to being finished which proved to be a good motivator to get to work.

We didn’t have the best of luck with the weather and at some points had to run inside with all our equipment while the rain pounded down on the boards.  Once the sun came back out again, it was back to work.

With a bit of help from our neighbors the last screw was in the boards at about 8 pm, another 12 hours after we began playing with the wood for our new deck.  We are more than happy with the end result and it may take months to get our muscles and limbs back into working shape.  It was all worth it!
