There’s nothing like spending the summer by the pool. All those hot days are enough to make anyone desperate to cool off, but this man wanted to take his summer pool experience to a completely different level because he felt like his backyard was a little bare. His actions left his neighbors confused. But as he moved forward with his plans, they were nothing short of amazed.

He started the first phase of the project, which was to build the foundation for what was going to be a poolside deck. And he needed to get deep into the ground so there would be enough to support the weight.

He used a large drill with gigantic auger blades to drill holes that would go deep into the ground, and he could see his neighbors looking at him with a great deal of confusion. He was sure they wondered why he was drilling holes next to his pool.

He drilled a whole series of them into an area that he had cleared out on one side of his pool, which was the first of several steps in getting his dream deck built. He needed to drill them deep, because they needed to support the weight of the main deck that he would build later.

He placed a wooden beam inside each of the holes, and he filled them with dirt. He could see his neighbors look at him with a look of confusion, and they probably wondered what he was planning to build. It was the first step in getting his pool deck built.

He finished building the first part of the foundation, which consisted of a set of vertical beams combined with some horizontal slats that would make up part of the outer frame. And as he continued to work, he started to see his vision come alive.

He still needed to lay down some wooden pieces that would act as framing for the deck’s floor. And as his vision started to come alive, he could see the confused look of his neighbors start to fade away. It was starting to look more like a deck with every piece that he had built.

He cut a couple of special pieces of wood so they would serve as the base for a set of steps leading up to the main deck, because the last thing he wanted was to climb up a deck that was more than half his height. He wanted an easier way to get up there, and the steps would enable him to do that.

The wooden posts had enough strength to support the deck, and they were sturdy enough to last. All he needed to do was cut the top part to about half the height of what they were. So, he rigged his saw in a way that would allow him to cut them down to size.

After he finished cutting each piece, the deck started looking more like the way he wanted. The top part of the beams would act as part of the railing that would surround the deck. The last thing he wanted was to have someone accidentally fall over, especially him or and his family.

After the posts have been cut to the appropriate size, he started to build the foundation for what was going the be the railing system for both the deck and the stairs. And when it was completed, his neighbors began to see what he had been building all this time. Even he could see what his vision was going to be once it was completed.

After he finished the final piece of the foundation, he started laying down some wooden slats that would serve as the deck’s floor. Each piece was nailed down to the foundation, and he made sure there weren’t any gaps between each piece. He wanted it to look like one solid floor and he needed to do the same thing for the stairs.

After the deck had been completed, he started to put in some lawn furniture. And while it took him a long time to build, he was glad that he had an above-ground pool deck that he and his family could enjoy throughout the summer. Not to mention, they had a spectacular view that they could experience while they were cooling off.

Each corner had been fastened by a series of strong bolts, and he used a special type of wood that had been specially treated for the outdoors. However, it was only part of the support structure that made up this custom deck.

Each vertical beam had a special piece attached to it, which allowed him to fasten it to a block of wood that he would place underground. It gave the deck the extra support it needed so it wouldn’t collapse under its own weight.

Metal fasteners that were placed in certain spots along the foundation, and they served as additional supports for the deck. As he made up the plans, he took every detail into careful account because he wanted a deck that would last for a long time.

He had other things that he wanted to do for his backyard, so the pool deck was only one piece of the proverbial puzzle. He had a great deal of fixing up for the outdoor space of his home, because he wanted a space of which he and his family could be proud.

Not only did he want to do some landscaping, but he also wanted to customize his entire backyard in a way that would make his neighbors completely stunned. With some time and some hard work, he could turn this bare backyard into an outdoor paradise.

It would also be nice to make his outdoor space friendlier for those times of the year when it’s cooler. His family would love to have a place where they can sit outside beside a warm fire and even toast some marshmallows.

Blind Golden Retriever Makes Fast Friends With His ‘Seeing Eye’ Companion.

If you are a living and breathing human being like us, you hate to see innocent animals suffer. In 2016, Charlie, a golden retriever, would end up losing both of his eyes due to a medical emergency. As an older dog, Charlie didn’t have to grow up without his vision.  Naturally, his owners were concerned about how their dog would adapt to life without being able to see. They knew that they had to do something to help their furry family member, so they decided to adopt a ‘seeing eye’ dog. If you can sense how cute this story is about to be, get ready to grab your tissues. We wouldn’t blame you if you cried from cute joy.

Adam Stipe adopted Charlie when the golden retriever was just a puppy. After nine years together, Charlie ended up losing his left eye due to complications resulting from glaucoma. Within a year, Charlie would lose his right eye, as well. By this time, Adam and his wife Chelsea had emptied their retirement bank account in order to pay for the treatment that had kept Charlie alive. Adam and Chelsea had also recently become pregnant. Talk about sudden life changes! In order to prepare for the baby, as well as better the life of Charlie, they decided to make a change.

When New Year’s Day arrived in 2019, Chelsea and Adam would welcome Maverick into their home. Maverick was an excitable golden retriever puppy who was ready to make new friends. Adam and Chelsea had adopted Maverick for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, they wanted to bring a puppy home to help Charlie get around the house. Second, Adam and Chelsea also wanted a puppy to grow alongside their newborn baby. While adding a baby and puppy to your house at the same time can be tough, the loving family managed to work it out!

After a bit of tension, Charlie and Maverick would soon become fast friends. In fact, you couldn’t walk around the house with the two golden retrievers running around together. According to Adam and Chelsea, Maverick quickly became a natural ‘guide companion’ for Charlie. Maverick learned to play with and guide Charlie around all without being told. According to Chelsea, “Maverick would realize that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes, so Maverick would pick it up and put it back in front of him to re-engage playtime.”

Due to Maverick’s kindness as well as Charlie’s own loving nature, both dogs have become the best of friends. According to Adam, Charlie has even begun to play like a puppy again. When Charlie was an ‘only dog’, he wouldn’t want to play nearly as much. Despite all the difficulties that life had thrown at Charlie, it is clear that he is being protected, loved, and cared for by the best furry friend anyone could ask for.
