This is what the side (east) deck looked like and it went around the back to the side walk in a picture below.
Front of the house taken from the east side looking west.
This is the back of the cabin looking east after deck removal
And this is the front of the house, how it looks now. There was a roof that went over the deck that is why there is a color change in the shingles. Just to give you an idea we pulled 40 pounds of nails and staples out doing this. My brother saved all the wood to burn in his wood stove. we will be replacing the roof with a metal one, and the deck will be enlarged and done with pavers. I will be heading back out as soon as the concrete guy is done.
Yeah I know I just wished my OLDER brother a happy birthday yesterday. But today is mine we are 3 years and 1 day apart. So that means I am 29 this year, its nice to get younger every year.....I think I will keep that up!
Today my OLDER brother turns 52 an old man for sure! I will be spending a lot of time with him starting today. He will be picking me up and we are going fishing. Then over the next few weeks I will be staying with him and helping out with his remodel. I will try to post when I can but have no idea when I will have a computer to work with.
Now I know what your thinking, How did I get such a perfect shot of a flopping fish with a camera phone? I just can't believe it turned out so well either! Granted it was a whopping 9 or 10 inches long and flopping around like a fish out of water but it was the first fish of the year! I hope you enjoy the photo and I hope that the next pictures of fish I catch turn out as well!
So I was at my parents house today, giving my mother her mothers day gift (but some damn sister beat me to it....and I will beat her yes you know who you are!) But I'm not upset I just worked for two days on loading pictures in to it and all just to find out my sister gave her one for Christmas! Oops got a little off track here. Okay so the real post is about BIRDS and not what my sister did to me and all my planing...............sorry.
Okay the red and yellow birds are male and female Red Crossbills, and the little guy is a pine Ciscin ? I couldn't find the spelling on it so it may be wrong.
Well here is a post that I was trying to put off in tell I got some pictures. But the weather SUCKS so bad over the last week that I wouldn't take my camera out in this crap. I mean it is MAY and snowing!. But anywhoooo he is the post.
Mom and dad are home!!!!! after a long (there longest to date) trip to somewhere warm they have returned. It is nice having them here, I just wish it would warm up be for they decide to go back where they can go outside!
