This post was scheduled to be completed prior to Christmas, hence the gratuitous Christmas reference in the title. But alas, life gets in the way and Cam only finished oiling the deck in early January.
|Stumps and beams|
|Our nephew Patrick inspecting the stumps!|
|All ready for boards|
|Our friend Clinton, the talented chippy who together with his chippy brother Anthony built our deck.|
|The finished product, all oiled. |
The timber is beautiful spotted gum from our local timber yard, Tait Timber and Hardware in Tooronga.
|Our gorgeous front portico!|
|The deck was built using concealed screws called camo that are screwed in using a guide tool into the sides of each board and therefore are not visible on the boards themselves.|
The edges are all picture edges to give a more polished finish.
There's some serious love here for our finished deck. It really softens the front landscaping and I am so happy that we used it!
Kirst and Cam!
