Default My Anniversary Present

I spent 3 days sun up to sundown building the deck for my wife 23 years tomorrow! Never been sorer or exhausted as I was yesterday. I wasnít the craftsman just the labor. Itís done and so am I!

Thanks! I have a great deal of respect for those in construction. I work inside at a desk and make great money but never come home in physical pain. I might kiss my computer on Tuesday lol!

Happy 23rd anniversary to you and your wife! Gifts that result from a labor of love are very special. She must be so pleased!

Please tell me you didn't do that in one day!

That is fantastic. I'm interested in getting a pool like that - I wonder what the current price is on something like that.

3 days! Wow, that would have taken me longer

What kind of wood is that?

Congrats on 23!

Thanks I was told $20/sqft in this area. The deck is a little over 400sqft. Pools are like boats money pits! I didnít want to do it but happy wife happy life lol!
