Just a quick re-cap of the tools and costs associated with this project in true “how to” “DIY” blogging fashion.

This was a tough one because there was a lot of starting & stopping but I would guess if you include the time taken to pick up the lumber, all the iced coffee breaks, and then the time it took to move this beast into position I bet you have 6-8 hours in this project.  Probably less if you aren’t as easily distracted as I was by the garden and other chores around the house…
