Deck build - The beginning

Tags: diy, deck, garden

Myself and my girlfriend decided that as the summer is coming soon the garden could do with some sprucing up. What's not better than to put some decking? Well, here we go. After thorough examination and debating about the location, size and who is going to do it, we ended up picking the back of the house to extend about 2.4m meters away and to be done by me. Smashing! Here is the complimentary before shot with my cat in the window.

The first step was to work out a basic shape and see it seems big enough. 

Clearly, some of the plants and bushes were in the way, so had to get rid off them which took me a whole evening, but it's definitely good workout. Here's before and after.

 

That's all for today.
