Wordless Wednesday: The Never-ending Deck Story

Remember way back in October when I posted the beginning "rubble"-stage photo of our backyard reno? At that time, we thought the project would be done by Christmas. At this point, I'd be happy if it was done by Valentine's Day. Sigh.

Anyway, at least we have boards on the deck now, so Rita can sun herself when the workers aren't there (standing around, gabbing). As you can see in the photo, the edging isn't done yet, and we still have no steps. Some day....

Maybe by the summer I'll have "after" pictures to share! (All I can say is, thank heaven it's a fixed cost contract and not "time and materials"!)

Happy (mostly) Wordless Wednesday!


  1. Nice to have a place to sun yourself again.

  2. Your backyard project sounds a lot like my basement project:)

  3. Rita looks very happy with the incomplete project. I have never had a renovation that was done any where near the estimate time for one excuse or another. I guess it teaches us patience.

  4. That's a really long time to build a deck! I definitely don't want to hire those contractors.....

  5. Home projects ALWAYS go on forever! We're still waiting for our roof to be repaired after Hurricane Sandy - that was back in October! And all this stopped the progress of our kitchen remodel, so now we have new cabinets and countertop with stripped-down walls. Makes me crazy!

    Rita sure looks happy though! :D

  6. Renovations always seem to take longer than planned... Looks like it will be lovely when finished!

  7. That is a great sunning place

    Stop on by for a visit
