Back from Iowa. We stopped at the house to scope out the scope of the project. Scribbled a material list on a notepad and called it a day Thursday evening & Headed for the Hotel. Got back to the house at daybreak so we could get a running start on a project we hoped we could complete in 2 days. Cheryl's Brother helped, but stressed, he was a truck driver, not a carpenter. We made a good team though, I'd measure, cut the boards & tack them in place & he'd screw them down & do the grunt work. Things went so smooth, we had the deck & the steps done by nightfall on Friday, leaving just the balusters to install Saturday morning. Cheryl got a call from her Mom this afternoon as we were heading home, saying Vance & his Son stopped by in the afternoon and got all the scrap cleaned up and a few odds N ends organized around the yard. The steps are much safer now. Steps are about 14" wide with only a 5" riser, with railings on both sides and plenty of room on the deck to get the front door open. They were happy campers.
