The Winter Way of Doing Things

Freezing temperatures require different approaches to getting things done outside. Even a task as simple as filling a water bucket becomes an extended procedure.

Rebuilding the Deck

After ten years, the back deck is in need of a few repairs and an upgrade from wood decking to composite. On top of that, the wood needs protection from water and the damage it causes.

For the structure that we raise, Time with materials is filled;
Our todays and yesterdays Are the blocks with which we build.
Build today, then, strong and sure, With a firm and ample base;
And ascending and secure Shall tomorrow find its place.
- Longfellow
