Once upon a time . . . (before there were eight of us), a table and several chairs were kept on the deck for those beautiful sunny days. In recent years, though, we've sat on the banister or steps. But when you're on the banister, the neighbours feel like your audience, and the steps are low and annoying if people are constantly using them for walking. So with summer again approaching, Mum asked Jarrod to build a seat for the deck. Jarrod worked with Uncle Paul (a builder) and got this done in an afternoon.
