A journal of my favourite pastimes gardening, farming and sewing.

The back deck has a floor
A milestone at last - we have put the sheets down on the back deck. After all the rain over the last few weeks, we finally have a fine weekend and we are making the most of it.
This is standing on the deck looking at the back of the house. The window in the middle of the wall will return to be a door and the window on the right (kitchen) will be enlarged with a servery added. The window on the left (bathroom) will probably be moved and resized at a later stage.
This photo is standing on the deck looking out to the north east. This is late in the day so most of what you see is in shadow but in the mornings it will be a lovely spot for breakfast. The dogs too no doubt will love lying in the sun on a cooler morning.
The last photo here is underneath the deck. Although it's not too high, there is enough room for us to walk comfortably. We will also be storing our camper trailer under here to keep it out of the weather. I will probably park my car here too in wet weather to unload shopping etc.
Now we move onto ballustrading, and then beams etc for the roof. We need to have the roof on by the end of November to allow our solar panels to be installed. Then, we are going to have a long lie down!
