Stopped at Nathan's yesterday to lend a hand.
My oldest son James II was hired to build a deck for Nathan's swimming pool. He had just finished a deck rebuild and expansion for Chris a few weeks ago.
And yes I am a very proud dad, as the skills my son has just amazes me.

This another one he has been working on, he said the decking boards alone were $22,000.00 bucks, some exzotick wood from south africa.
Did I say I was a proud dad. :)

Nice projects!

I remember years back when he and Kenny and I redid that tongue and groove deck surface on that 100 year old St. Joseph property my son now owns :). I'd like to say I taught him something but clearly he knows what he's doing :) :) :).

James #2 definitely has some of that talent that runs in the family!

LOOKS GREAT !!!!! I helped my son over the memorial day weekend build a deck too! Took 2.5 days but man it looks a fantastic too
our BOYS are now men..... And you know what that makes us? OLD FARTS!!!!!!!:dunno2 JUST ASK THEM:brow
He asked me if I could just come over and give him a hand and that he had the plan and had already started it. I'm amazed with my son to James IMG9520751.jpg IMG9520761.jpg IMG9520621.jpg
