Its been two years in the making, from first planning on giving the wee house’s deck a major overhaul, to finding a contractor!? and then going through three due to one outrageous price request and two not showing up… you’d swear in our little town people are sleeping on beds of money you cannot get anyone to come and do work, even if i stood on the side of the road with a fistful of dollars I wouldn’t secure a contractor.

Then we we finally did find someone, in another town, who even showed up with a portfolio of decks (trust me I almost fell over!) we had plans drawn, price agreed to and the job was scheduled to start Aug 29… um yes this was the day after Hurricane Irene, which wiped out our contractors business and half the roads between him and us.

Cut to a year later…. and what have we here… an almost completed deck done in 5 days! Mr Weiss and I almost fell over (again) when we showed up expecting nothing but holes in the ground and was greeted by this site…

a non wonky front porch and a twice the size back deck, just waiting for its lovely cable railing system to be installed, a small shaded roof area and the HOT TUB! wonders will never cease!
