Deck expansion with benches

My wife decided she didn't really like our 5 foot wide wrap around deck. She wanted more outdoor space. I called my dad and he was more then happy to drive 5 hours north and spend a long weekend helping build my wife's dream deck. The main deck took my dad and I two full days. He gave me pointers on how to finish the rails and he went home. Over the next two weeks I finished the rails. It was nice but I guess not perfect. My wife showed me a picture of built in benches and asked me if I thought I could make these. They took me another weekend but came out great. She loved it all!
