Next up is install the deck drain, pour the raised deck and steps, and set the pavers. We were planning on doing that this week, but new covid-19 restrictions here start tomorrow for non essential services, so that will delay the project. Not sure how this plays out yet, But prayerfully, the disease and it’s impact can be contained and eliminated for all of us!

Sorry to hear your decking is on hold for now. This is a learning experience for us all right now.
