We still need to stain the wood so all of our handiwork isn't eaten away by bugs and rot. But, seeing as how it has rained about every 36 hours this summer, we couldn't get the window we needed to clean the deck and apply the stain. Now, with a stretch of seven dry days ahead of us, we are ready. We spent Sunday scrubbing the deck down and tonight, we'll stain it! Then, it's just two days of drying and we're officially DONE.

Well, you thought wrong, grasshopper. While the deck has been fully constructed for about two months and legal since mid-August, we've been squabbling with Mother Nature in an effort to truly, truly check this beastly project off our to-do list.
