Treadstone Towers

It's been a while since my last post, and I am getting directives to put a new one up. I'm on the downhill slide here, just wanting to wrap things up and get home to my family. I finished the deck about a month ago, so I'd better give an update about the finished product. Our first "official" use was our Halloween party. Most everyone came in costume, and we were able to buy a few pizzas from the on base Pizza Hut. We had about 30 people on the deck at one time, and there was room for many more. We had a "down day" today, so we are going to have the Company BBQ here tonight. At our last Company meeting, we took a vote and "Treadstone Towers" is now the deck's official name. Here are a few pictures of the finished product.

Here is a picture of the "lower level"

This photo is looking to where I was standing when I took the first photo:

This shows the stairs and is taken from the same direction as the last one:

This was taken from the Hesco's (big barriers) looking at the stairs from the other direction:

Looking down from the 3rd floor (you can see the Hesco's where I stood to take the last picture)

This is looking at the covered part of the 2nd floor:

And here is a shot of the ladder to the 3rd floor:

And a closer shot of the ladder. Notice the lightly used pull-up bars:

And finally, a shot from outside of our LSA:

Well, that's all for today. Thanks for stopping by, and I'll try to get another one out soon.

Speaking of..where are the pics from Halloween? Yeah.. I'm slacking too. :) Just keeping busy trying to get the kids and I healthy again before you get home! Love you!!!
