Mom’s in Reno visiting her sister, so dad came up to the cabin Saturday, arriving early afternoon. I had designs in mind and he, who turned 70 a few months back, figured prominently in them.

I wanted to get his take before commencing, then it was a trip to the lumber yard and hardware store for the necessary bits & pieces. Dad was project manager, while I did the cutting and operated the screw gun. Here’s the result for the two sets of stairs, front & back, that access the deck surrounding the cabin on two sides.

Tolerances aren’t to absolute perfection, but we both agreed that all was close enough for rocket work.
