Sit Back

29 May

Relax and soak in the view.  I can’t stop looking at this picture.

It’s done.  Thanks in no small part to Brian and Brent Price.  I’m speechless.  How about another view.

It’s huge.  24 x 24.  Go lay those dimensions out in your back yard to get a perspective.  Enormous.  I think I’m going deck camping.

In other news it’s Tasha’s birthday today or is for another hour anyway.  Happy 39 baby! I  Love you.  Hey, let’s go camping.

26 May

I have been a little preoccupied over the last couple of weeks but thought that I should share something with everyone.

I spent 2 of my 4 day Memorial day weekend on Gooseberry Mesa trying to put together a deck for a future yurt.  I did not even take my bike as to not be tempted.  Serious, no bike.  How many people go all the way to Gooseberry Mesa and don’t bring a bike?  Zero,  that’s how many.  Well, 2 that I know of now; Myself and Brent Price.

Just a mess of boards on Saturday morning.

Good thing no one brought a nail gun.

Level and square are so overrated.

Could it be almost framed?

I will never tire of looking at it.

Nice and tucked away in the trees.

I think we’ll cut a hole in the deck for the tree.

None of this would have been remotely possible without the help of Brian Price, Kevin and especially Brian’s dad Brent whose work output is approximately that of the other 3 of  us squared.  Thank you Brent Price!

I had to leave Saturday night but Brent and Brian hung out for the next 2 days hauling more lumber and finishing the platform.  They even spent a night camped out on the deck.  I can’t wait to see those pictures and promise to share them.
