Sorry Anderson, I was unable to attend your birthday party.  Hope you have a good time on Sunday.  It was perfect weather for working outside yesterday.  Completed the stairs for the deck and they look really good.  I even have neighbours stopped by and compliment the deck.  My goal was to complete everything last night.  At 7:30pm, down to a few more pieces to go ……I ran out of screw.  Damn it!  Will post some picture tonight.

Final Stage of Deck building

by on Jun.26, 2010, under Life

I have not touch the deck after framing was completed last week.  One of the reason was $$.  Since the day I started the project, I only buy the materials when I need it.  Couple reason:
1)  I have no storage
2) I have no $$
3) There is a Home Depot 10 min. away from my house.

Even during framing, I will buy 10 pieces at a time. (That is how much I can fit in my tiny car.)  Once I finish, I will just drive to Home Depot and get more.  (I think most of the people in the lumber area recognize me now).

As I enter the final Stage of Deck building (Putting Deck Board on the frame).  I need a lot of lumber.  I check the flyer every week since the day I started the project,  hoping it will go on sale.  I waited…..waited…..waited…..I told myself that I already stop building  for a week.  If I don’t continue this week, I may not finish before the deadline (July 1).  I told myself that I will wait until the flyer came  on Thursday night.  If they don’t go on sale, I will just buy them using my credit card.  Thank God…..the wait is over.

10% off on Cedar deck board……also no interest no payment for 12 month with Home Depot credit card.  Jackpot.  I went to Home Depot last night.  Order all the material I needed to finish the job.  They will be delivery on Monday.  (So I don’t have to rent a truck and do it myself)

I will go to Home Depot and order railing with Joyce tomorrow because all railings are also 10% off.  Now I have one year to pay off my deck.

Thank God…..give me a week to rest up and ready to start working again on Monday.

Due to weather (risk of thunderstorms) we are not going to the zoo with Jayden.  But that does not mean I have more time to build the deck.  Sucks……………..
