All done. That outer edge was cut using a circular saw. You would be surprised to learn that a circular saw can indeed cut a curved line. Just make sure you wear hearing protection. These types saws are loud enough as is, but with the added friction of the circular blade rubbing against the kerf cut… trust me when I say it gets loud.
At this time I started on the walk through trellis arbor at the driveway. Not much to it really. I made it up as I went along. Framing with 4×4 posts to meet the garage with the round deck.
Filled in the side panels with the same type of privacy screen. The goal is to eventually get that climbing vine to grow over the arbor.
Of course, the true test is that of a Newfoundland winter. Which it passed with flying colors. 🙂
