My photography has been kinda stunted while all this has been going on, but for the first time, I reserved a set of hours here to just take and work on photos of my ordinary stuff that I have here - the work we’ve done, and the oddities we’ve discovered, in addition to the exploration of our rather uncivilized surroundings.davechinn wrote: ↑Sun May 20, 2018 6:58 pmI feel I might be playing a little catch up with this 52 project. Week #17 brings my finished updated deck. Lots of hard work and hours. If it ever needs to be done again, it will be contractors performing the job. We used the composite decking boards which is suppose to be maintenance free. We broke it in last night with a cook out between rain and firing up the new gas fire pit for the first time.
Absolutely Minnie !!! This job was debatable for completion. Last year, this year or next year. As you can see, this year won out. We wanted to complete this early in the season prior to hotter temperature. More updates are in the works, but most are contractor bound because I don't have or want the skills to replace pre-hung doors.
I agree updates gets in the way of photography and other tasks/hobbies we so desire. Although, what I have seen and heard your projects are much more intense and mores involved with the house you all are working on. In the end though, restoration on an older home is well worth the effort.
