Well, right now our BBQ is on a makeshift platform so we can BBQ (we actually cut the sides of the deck to fit this horrible DYI fix for the time being). The steps are not to code. So picture this: It’s winter, there is a lot of snow. I had my hands full with bags of stuff for work. As soon as my feet touched the steps they turned into skis, and as I recall in my slo-mo moment, I surfed down the steps and landed on my stomach. I laid on the driveway, the wind knocked out of me with my hands still holding onto the bags. I lifted my head up watching as my oblivious husband kept walking. I was hoping the neighbours didn’t see my performance, but I gave myself a 7 for form and a 10 for holding onto the bags. So yes we are in desperate need of a back deck that is safe to walk down and as well to BBQ on. My husband is handy and is, in fact, a contractor, but like a mechanic who drives the busted up car, our house projects get the same fate. Please help us build a better deck.


Thanks to every who entered our contest and to those who voted. A special shout out goes to our runner-ups, Tim Deremo of Barrie, Chris Horvat of Barrie and Christina Scala of Angus. You don’t go away empty-handed. You’ll each receive $500 towards your deck needs courtesy of United Lumber Home Hardware on Bayfield.
