Did some more work, wanted to get the planters off of the ground so I build a frame and secured to the ground using landscape spikes.



The planters go on either side of the entrance (to create some kind of a wall)



And a platform for others planters (want to create a wall of plants).



The finished product - kinda.

And before finishing the main deck I decided to build a grill/outdoor kitchen space... Lets see when I'll finish this one.

I got lazy with the small deck and used mailbox spike to secure the 4 by 4 posts at each corner. It was not easy driving a 30" spike in a very rocky ground, but managed after digging down about half way. I think it'll be fine.

I've been doing some work after my daytime job and finished the deck but decided that I need a pergola over it, so took the sides off to fit in some posts.

I laid it out using spacers to square it.



Then worked my way from the center out (after screwing everything down I removed few boards to install the posts)



The posts are plum and secured, next I'll bolt on some rafters to build the pergola.
