The deck itself went up in no time, but the finishing touches seem to be taking forever. I spent all day building the stair rail, capping the deck rails, and staining all the cedar. I also stained the treated posts and beam. It looks really good with everything matching. Now I just need to put some fascia boards on the side of the stairs and figure out what I want to do for the top part of the stair rail.

I would like to say a BIG thanks to my dad for all his help with the deck. We got much more done in one weekend than I thought we would. We completed everything but the railing and a few fascia pieces. I started on the railing today and got it built around the perimeter of the deck. It was not near as fun working on it by myself. However, now the kids can go out and play, and they really seem to enjoy it.
