Perhaps inspired by the deck work we did last weekend, we decided to spit shine our side deck up a bit. We still need to get the trim on our columns…I’m quite sure my parents will not take five years to complete theirs…but we’ve been busy with other things. There is still a balcony to complete directly above this deck. All the framing is in place, it just needs decking and railings. We’re thinking of screening it in which would be a nice place to be in the thick of the mosquito laden summers we get around here. This looks like a good summer project – the balcony is attached to the last room in the house in need of a face lift – and would be the perfect spot to rest for a spell during the work. And it would let us put off the garden / fence for yet another summer. (We’ve been so eager to get into that project…)
And you can just never get enough of these napping shots. This is what Sunday afternoons should look like. Or the two of us just sitting in a swing on that screened in balcony reading a book or daydreaming… so I guess we’ll have to keep up our Sunday pace for awhile to get to that place.
Back to the work week all you weekend warriors.
Have a good Monday.
