I was going to wait until the entire deck was finished to show it to you, but due to the weather, it’s taking waaaay longer than we expected. We’ve had rain almost every day for the last two weeks, and it is supposed to continue until this weekend.
The sky did give us a break yesterday evening, though for a few hours and we got some more railings built and installed. And now we have 14 of the 16 sections of railing done.
We got to this point when the rain and thunder started rolling in:
So close! It’s hard to tell, but Hubs is standing on a staircase that goes down to the back yard. To give you a better idea of the whole-picture, here is the layout of the deck:
We just have 4 small sections of railing, and a gate for the front steps left to build. It could all be done in an afternoon.
The railings definitely do distract from the view we love so much, but, they also make the deck feel both cozier and larger. We’re probably going to be spending a lot more time out on the deck this summer since it’s so much more pleasant, so we’re working on a couple ideas to make it even more fun.
I’d love a hanging chair, or 4, but the cost is just not in the budget. 🙂
