so the temperature climbed over 50 and we were able to start our deck project.first, temporary deck between garage and house needed to be removed. eventually this whole corridor will become deck.
the trench is for irrigation main line. unfortunately it has to go under the future deck. to keep it easier to fix the pipe in case something happens, we are placing the main in 2# bigger sleeve. that way we just pull it out, fix it and push it back without having to remove the deck.
deck staked out.
also we started to level all the dirt to get it ready for grass and decorative gravel.
and of course, our helper.
