new house: the deck | Crazy For Trying

One of the appealing features of the new house is that it has a deck. What this means is that we can eat outside and not get eaten alive by mosquitoes (because we’re not at ground level)! Also, I can just walk out of my kitchen door with food. Also, I can sit out there in the evenings and watch the stars.

The deck that was on the house when we bought the place was old and decrepit. I joked to Richard that the only thing holding up the deck was the old wisteria…

…turns out I was right. The insurance company gave us 30 days to remove the deck. So, we tore that old thing down and built a new and improved deck! The biggest change was that we moved the stair to the alley side instead of next to the house — much more convenient!

in progress — this was last July.

We also used Trex for the walking surface — no splinters on bare feet! Now, take note, please: that iron gate that you see there? That will be replaced with a door and that interior space will be reclaimed as part of the newly designed kitchen.

Here are some finished shots:

all those weed shrubs are gone now too…

And of course: Pippa had to take all her meals out there last summer.
