 It's A Deck!  Our new pride and joy! Our home had a deck when we purchased it 13 years ago but it was not very safe so we removed it about a year or two after we purchased the home.

My New Sign ShedWith some remodeling of the entry way of my office I lost the space that I kept my signs in. I went shed shopping and this is what I ended up. I needed something small because it actually sits on a sidewalk and I don't want to take up the whole sidewalk. I also purchased this one ...
