Mom started a new project – walkway along the addition. This time, we decided to built it on the cheap. All the materials are left-over(s) or defected ones which are 70% off the marked price. This wood is always painted with a purple strip. But after cutting and choosing, it is as good as a new one, especially with a piece only 36″ (standard walkway width) long.
When defected material runs out, I will stop building and waiting for the those materials show up in the store again.
For safety, I curtained off this area with a red tape (3rd picture) to remind Mom that this is an area with un-even surface (picture two) which may pose tripping hazard.
