Footers have been poured and the posts are up! The ledger board (attaches the deck to the house) is in place also.
All the framing is finished and the lower/smaller portion of the deck already has decking boards. All the decking boards have been laid! It's still far from finished--there will be wrap around stairs on the lower portion and a railing on the upper part. However, it's finished enough for us to start using! The house shades the deck in the afternoon/evening. It's a perfect dinner spot!
