2017 Deck Blog #1

Bob Timm, Minot Real Estate, National Marketing Realtors

A deck to blog fromToday was the first day of 2017 that the temperature in Minot had reached 50 degrees... in fact it even reached the 60's today.

All I could think about was getting a chair on that deck and bringing my computer out to write a blog.

As you can see there is still snow on the ground.... but it's melting fast!

The snow you see right off of the deck you have seen before in an earlier post, my kids had made a fort in a big drift, that is the remains of the drift and fort. I asked my son to attack it with a garden spade and spread it around the yard so it wouldn't take till July to melt.

As a family we also cleaned out the flowerbeds and raked half of the front yard. That was enough work on the Sabbath.

Now is the perfect time to call a contractor to build you a deck for your back yard. If you would like some suggestions feel free to give me a call.
