One Heck of a Deck

Full pictures found here.

For those of you scoring at home, I have finally finished building the deck. Here are some stats for all the deck-building fantasy leagues out there.

I started on April 4th and finished on June 8th. So it took me a little over two months.

The total cost was $914. That includes all the tools I "had" to purchase. The materials probably cost ~$600. I still think this is cheaper than what any contractor would charge.

It's a 12ft x 12ft deck. It consists of 26 2x6 boards on top.

It's sealed with Thompson Water Seal. Sealing it took about 30 minutes.

Would I do it again? Yes. But not right now. Now I want to relax and enjoy it a bit. Just kick back and enjoy a nice beverage while gazing at the hill.
