The Island Project

Over 25 years ago….when the pond was created, I had an island carved out…and sunk posts for an eventual swimming/sunning deck. Well, the project hasn’t risen to the top of the list over the years as many other critical projects were tackled. However, in the past few years, the island itself has begun to disappear into the water….like the Maldives!

As a result…before the entire island vanished I determined it was time to proceed with our island deck project. The goal will be a swimming/sunning deck…with a potential shelter or gazebo to provide shade/cover from the sun or rain. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be working on and reporting progress on the island! Let me know what you believe would be the best kind of structure to put on the new deck!

The island 25 years on….sinking into the pond! 🙁
