Deck Progress - Day 2

We got quite a bit done today, considering we had to stop and make two Lowe's runs to get stuff we needed and didn't have. Well one trip was first thing in the morning before we started, but Oh and on the way to Lowe's the second trip, we saw a Black Bear! So cool to see it. It was not far from the road, and I did have my camera, but only had  my 55MM lens. So here is a picture of it but it's not very close.

Then here is our deck progress for the day and it was a perfect day today; Not windy and the temp just about 70.  The size of this deck is approximately 35 feet by just under 15 feet wide. We sort of went a bit big, but it really has to be big since the boccie ball court is so long. We are happy with our progress, however i was hoping to get a little further, but we are still on track for finishing the under structure by tomorrow. Maybe if we are lucky we will even get a few deck boards down. 

Then I got sidetracked for a moment and saw this spider, Clayton needed me too, but I made him wait. I just had to get a picture of this thing. I have no idea what kind of spider this is, but I sure am glad I didn't see him on me, I would have freaked. Look how scary he can make himself when he feels threatened. With a Butt like that; I will most definitely only get as close as this to take a picture.

  1. Wow! A bear, a bad spider and two trips to Lowes all in one day. You'll be glad the deck is big. It's amazing how people love to gather and pull up a chair in such a place. Good luck and keep your hands out of those power tools.
