Wintertime Is Work Time On Our Homestead Construction Projects

A Wanna Be PioneerThe first project we tackled in the fall was a deck at our back sliding glass door.  It was still pretty warm out this fall, but doable. 

The builder left us these steps.  We don’t even think they used treated lumber, and after three years, they were getting downright dangerous.  I don’t think it even took us five minutes to tear them apart.

We built an 8 x 16 foot deck instead.

We decided to mimic our fencing style instead of using traditional balusters/spindles.  It’s safe, but has an open feel and doesn’t block our view of our beloved pasture.  :)
