Welcome to the June edition of On The House Express! It's the time of the year that we've all been waiting for--summer, sun, and fun are just around the corner! With the beginning of summer comes our Ultimate Deck Giveaway, where you can win all of the materials needed to build and finish a 400-square-foot redwood deck. It's our biggest contest of the year, so don't forget to enter!

And just in case you would rather build and finish that deck yourself, we also have a featured article entitled "Building a Redwood Deck", where you can learn all of the details to create your own "Ultimate Deck" this summer. In addition, we have all of our usual fun items, including Pictures From On The Road, our Crew Member of the Month, our June Calendar, and some of Dom's great recipes!

Our "Tip-meister" is no newcomer to either home improvements or the Carey Brothers. He’s been editor of the industry’s top three national remodeling magazines and we’ve been working together since 1985! Nor is Don a stranger to showbiz; his resume lists extensive credits that also include being Buster Keaton’s straight-man as a kid. Zowie! (Whatta guy!) His entertaining "take" on our tips brightens the day... every day!

So, one of you grab the meat fork and man the Weber©, and somebody get the pitcher of lemonade!
