Day 2. The mast has been set, the lower deck has been laid, and the stud walls for the upper deck are in place. This thing will be a monster. The biggest decision now? What to put on the sides. My husband is split between barn sheeting and fence pickets. The FIL wants to use grey siding to match the house. Me? Well, I probably have enough cardboard to cover it temporarily until they can decide. (Pool tables come in BIG boxes.) But, alas, cardboard will not stand up to weather, and this baby's gonna be here a while. We have plenty of plans to trick it out, but for now, we just gotta get it finished enough (and safe enough) for the party. Good times. Wish us luck!
