We had to get all of the braces put in place before we started putting the top on the pier. Those are 2 x 8 x 20's. They were heavy and not so easy to get all the way to the other end of this pier. Once the boards were pulled to place, we put in a water line and an electrical line for later.

When we got married, Mike told be I had gotten the last dozen of roses that I would ever receive from him. He lied, because right now I have thousands and thousands of roses in my yard and hopefully they will bloom all summer long......So much better than getting roses from a florist.

A kitchen faucet, garbage disposal, and a couple more pieces of trim are all that we need to finish the kitchen. Tomorrow the carpet will be installed and we will start moving in. It is really almost finished. Mike and I figured out that we have always had a building project working since we got married. I am voting for a break in that streak. Coming soon yard updates! In the middle of all this I have gotten the yard in shape for Spring.
The weather was really awful Saturday morning after the cold front moved in. Mike was actually holding on and pulling himself onto the porch against the wind in the picture. The waves were splashing over the bulkhead and the pier. It makes it easier to work when there is no possible way that you could fish.
Doors and trim got installed last weekend. We worked Friday night, all day Saturday and all day Sunday, but we finished. It took us all week to recover, all that crawling around on the floor putting down baseboard, I'm getting old. I couldn't wait for the painter to see how the color I picked out looked. We call it tropical blue.
