woo hoo! finally done (pics)

After much research and many questions, I'm done with my project (finally). I started with the deck which started out as a blue color. Then changed to match house (gray). Next came the patio. 18x18 concrete patio blocks. Then came the screened in area. I used "underdeck" and "screentight" both great products and recommended. Now the test will be to see how things hold up. The best part is that my wife and I tackled ALL of it by ourselves. Pretty rewarding.
I just wanted to thank all the kind people here who have helped me. Here are some pics.

dtro,

Congratulations to you and the Mrs.! It looks great!!! Again the color scheme is appealing to the eye.

Now it's time to kick back and enjoy it...you guys deserve it.

Thanks for sharing the pics!

It's great to do-it-yourself...with Pride!

dtro,

You've got it goin' on!! Now all you need is a little concrete pad outside if the screen room to put the BBQ on -- don't want to be smokin' up the inside of the room and the UnderDeck above it!!

Great job!!

Mike

By the way here's how the cost broke down:

Deck materials-------1000
Patio materials (pavers and base)--------400
Underdeck (clearance price)---------------300
Screen lumber---------------------150
Screentight---------------------300
Screen------------------------75
Screen door----------------20
Misc (screws, gutters, stain, paint)-------100

Total-------------------------2350

I would say it took my wife and I approx 6 full weekends and some weekday after work putzing.
