The deck is off to a slow start. Initially I was planning to go at it all Christmas holidays, however after the year we have had a slow steady pace seems to be how it is going to go.
We started by shifting 2 tonnes of fill, and I would say I will shift at least one more once the footings are dug out. It was about 36 degrees the day we decided to start digging, at least there was a nice sea breeze.
Happy new year to everyone and all the best for 2012!
