It is nice to see Michael's To Do list dwindling down, as he seems less stressed as each project gets finished. Here he is completing Project #6. Ever since Michael and Brian built the deck over Christmas break, he has mentioned to me that it would eventually need to get stained, preferably before the summer months. Last week, after checking with me that we were fine on money, he picked out the color "Douglas Fir" from Sherwin Williams and began staining the deck on Sunday. First he rolled the top, then used a paint brush to get between each board, then rolled a second coat after work yesterday.
