The deck is finally finished...almost. I say almost because we still have to paint and do trim work. Both of those things will have to wait until it's warmer and we have a little bit of extra money for the trim. But it's done enough to move Malachi outside.

We installed the carpet today and I have to admit this was the first project we have done that didn't take longer than we planned. We actually got it done in one day with time to spare!

The windows are great, there is lots of light and it really warms up that area. During the summer we can take them out and put screening in.

Oh and just so I don't keep you in suspense, that oval thing hanging on the wall is a train track. It's 4 x 8 so it's hanging there to keep it out of the way when it's not being used.

The deck looks great! What fun for you to have more room! Is the big plywood looking circle the base for your new Christmas wreath? ;-) Happy moving Malachi's things into his new room!

I'm glad you explained the train track! The deck with all the light will be wonderful. I can imagine the serene evenings in late summer with the screens in.
