Last July we had our pool installed (you can read about it here) and this year in the Spring; Jerry built us an amazing deck to enjoy :-) Finally getting a chance to blog about it and was able to pull the pictures through. :-)
He had a couple good friends come over to help him install some of it, for which we are very grateful!! Sam on the deck, Ed bottom left and Mikey on the right next to Jerry.
We didn't want Sam to get a bad sunburn on his head so Hayley lent him her Pink Panther hat and he wore it proudly, lol. ;-)
Hayley also knows what a perfectionist her dad is when he works on his projects. Ever since she has been little he has been teaching her construction so..... when she walked out she immediately saw this board slightly out of place and pointed it out to him, lol. He was like "I didn't think anyone would notice it..." but sure enough Hayley did, I guess he taught her well ;-)
After getting the deck part ready, it was time to add the sides.
Jerry designed this himself, there were no plans to follow.... he just did it all on his own with an idea he had in mind.
Sam came back a few times and really was helpful to Jerry in getting things done. :-)
Originally he was going to complete a ramp as you can see in the next picture, it was for my mom since she is in a wheelchair now; but it ended up being so steep we decided to change it out to steps. She wouldn't have been able to get in the pool anyway, but we were hoping we could get her up there to sit with us and hang out. :-(
All finished just in time for Hayley's 16 th birthday party :-)
Kathleen was so excited waiting to get in for the first time this year!
Hayley's group of friends came over and had a blast, it was a wonderful day!

Hope you're staying cool this summer!!!
