Looks nice - suggestion for weeding is to use a flame-thrower weeder. With all the rock, no fire worries and no bending over. I use one in my garden and after hitting it once or twice, most weeds are, um, toast.

That is a sweeeeeeeeeet deck!! My deck is the original one that was built in the 70s. The wood is all shot. I am going to rip it up and put in a paver patio eventually. Among the many other updates the house needs :)

Thanks guys. It was a difficult build for me, standing 26ft up on a plank, a SHAKY plank, holding the wieght of the ridge pole then each rafter, while my brother climbed around me ( on a 10" plank scaffolding) and nailed everything in place. Got-er-done. :clap:
Dave, bring your wife over next visit. Let her see first-hand :D
