Lisa got the utility trailer hitched up and we headed over to Lowe's for the remaining pieces of lumber she calculated we need.
We went through the lumber at Lowe's and bought six 2" x 6" x 10' and one 2" x 6" x 8' pieces of pressure-treated lumber. Sitting on top of the lumber are some metal plates that Lisa will use to attach pieces of decking together.
Here is the partially completed project as of when Lisa pressed the pause button. She'll clean this up and start putting in the new parts soon.
It will be nice to have this project completed. We might even start barbecuing things again. However, we'll have to be vigilant: because of the way winds swirl around the house, this area traps a lot of leaves and other debris.
