Starting the Pergola

  1. Crystal says:

    HOLY CATS! You two make Wonder Woman look like Tinker Belle! I don’t mean this to say that you are body builder strong (although sounds like Deb might be.) I mean it the sense you don’t shy away from the difficult projects and you don’t give up. I’ll drink something in you honor, as I sit and watch Mr B work. That’s my jam. That, and reading your escapades with 4,000 pound wood.

      ???? Don’t worry, Crystal. There were a few drinks after the fall and smashing of the finger and a few after we called it a day! Thank God, Deb had to work today or we would be out there at it again. ???? I told her after this shenanigan, I am taking a long, long break.

    Well it’s going to look wonderful glad Deb is OK (Sore I’m sure but ok) that treated wood is a bear to toss around cannot wait for the next update rest, drink and recover.

    I can’t help it, I literally laughed out loud at that post. I can picture it!! Hilarious, at least you both survived to tell the story. Loving your blog, so glad I live close to be able to watch this and visit in person. Much love ????????

  4. Lol! Ok. So, if I would have started at the beginning I would have seen that the posts were 6 X 6 already. I’m working my way backwards on your posts. Which, ironically is often how I start a book of design. Something always tells me that the best is saved for last. Creative minds are a bit crazy.

    The two of you are absolutely amazing!!! I watch you all everyday.

  6. […] I have shared it several times.   Deb and I built a pergola and I talked about our plans, when we started it, an update mid-build, another mid-build update, and how I decorated it for Summer.  Those posts […]

  7. […] from my last post that these huge posts each weigh 6,000 pounds.    I’m starting to think I’m too old for this […]

    I just happened to come across your blog and I’m so glad I did! I found myself laughing out loud while reading it. ????
    You are so descriptive in your writing, I felt I was right by your side during this project. I have never felt this way with any other blogs I have read. So I signed up right away to join your journey. Hope the both of you have fully recovered from this project.
    I can’t wait to see what’s next!
