We start building our deck tomorrow.

DH is not what one would call handy. ;D He doesn't like to try his hand at stuff like this because he feels that something like building a deck should be left to professionals. BUT- it's really too expensive for us at this time to pay for the lumber and someone to build it. And our BIL is studying to get his Landscape Architect diploma, which includes deck design. SO, you guessed it, BIL is helping. LOL. I figure once we get the frame up, it shouldn't be too hard to get the boards on there. But of course, we can't pick just a simple deck for our first project like this. Nope. Our design has two levels and angeled sides with black baluster railings. bwahahahaha.

So like I said, wish us luck. If it doesn't turn out, dh is never going to let me hear the end of it. :)

Good luck and have fun with it!!

I know what you mean about having a non handy husband though mine isn't really either. Luckily for him I am so if anything needs to be built I just do it myself.
