World cup, time off and decking

It's been a while since my last post. I took a month off for the world cup and enjoyed watching that. During that time I also started work on the decking in the al fresco and outside area of the home. Building the deck has been an enjoyable experience, and have found that I really love the hands on work. It has also proven quite cost effective - the cheapest quote for building this was in the $9K range. In total, this won't cost me more than about $2,500. $2,000 of that is just the Merbau decking, so overall it is a very low cost project to do yourself. Check out the pictures. I will spend the next 2 or 3 week ends nailing the decking on.
