Today I finished the railing for our deck stairs.  I had some help on the project– make that a lot of help.  But I did the final touches on the railings.

It felt good to finish, and I was really enjoying the work.  We still need to caulk and repaint, but the deck is totally usable and safe for kids.  I think our zero-gravity outdoor recliners arrive tomorrow.  Really happy about how this project has turned out.  The deck stairs project was one we were going to do eventually but Claire also asked for this for her birthday, so it’s pretty much her birthday present. Felt good to do some manual construction labor.  I could handle that, at least I think so.
