New Deck On the Way

May 23, 2012 § Leave a comment

The temporary porch that Bob the Builder put outside our sliding door is no more. The fine folks at Great Works Landscape are building a new 10′ x 12′ deck in its place. Here are some shots of the work-in-progress.



I’m posting the picture below of the back side of the house. We’re struggling to figure out what to do with this side. We won’t be able to put a deck on this side for a while. Eventually, the deck that’s going up now will become a screened-in porch and the deck will wrap around to the back side of the house and stop just after the “front” door. But until then, we have this ugly foundation to cover up. I’ve got some viburnum, ferns, blueberries, and other perennials to plant here, but I don’t know if any of it is enough to obscure all that concrete. Anyway, here’s the before shot. Hopefully we’ll come up with something nice for the medium term with Kate’s help.
