I can't mark it off the punch list as it still needs a support along the top railing and the ramp still needs the side boards (to keep wheelchairs from going off the ramp) . It is nice to at least have it looking good. Patio table is still needing put together if Hubby every gets the time.
South railing. We have an umbrella that will go between the two chairs on the left and I need to spray paint the small table.
North railing. Metal chair needs welded, Hubby thinks he can get one of the repair shops that work on Amish stuff to fix it and then I can repaint it... we had 6, I am not sure where they are in the barn but I want to make sure they are fixed and repainted by next year. We were going to put the grill here... no way now. That railing is vinyl just like siding and Hubby has already melted vinyl siding on 2 houses with the grill. Grill will stay on the front porch. Not a bad place as I very seldom get rain there but I do get wind so we put up a wind block.
Rascal's crook of his tail at bottom of photo... that is what we see when he is walking on the ground besides this railing. Wilbur and Charlotte are watching Hubby pull the flat bed trailer in and parking. This is the west railing. The bottom . of all the rails are low enough to stop one of Rascal's balls from going off the deck.
We might put lattice later in the open spots but right now I love the way it is.
Railings look great. I had just assumed they were wood. Nice point about not putting the grill near them, never thought about that. So poor hubby has already melted a couple of house walls, eh? Well, we have all paid our stupid tax many times over.ReplyDelete
Doesn't it feel wonderful to get a major project done? It really looks good.
Oh yeah. The front porch as vinyl but I moved the grill so it's at least 3 ft from it LOLDelete
Looks great! You have done such a nice job, and I know you will enjoy your deck.ReplyDelete
We don't use our deck as much as I had hoped since it gets so hot out there in the afternoon/evening and it faces west.
ours is to the west. I was thinking about an awning over the French doors but E said to be careful with what that roof is as it could become a sauna instead. I am thinking of canvas, I think I saw something on pinterest that would work.Delete
Your outdoor area that we can see, looks very neat and nice. The dogs look healthy and well cared for, too.ReplyDelete
The deck, rails, chairs all look very comfortable. I would love that! I wonder what dogs are thinking when they are watching something like moving the trailer. I do love an umbrella, too. It looks like a nice place to read or just sit.ReplyDelete
we sit there in the mornings for coffee. It's all shade then and the kitchen porch is full of sun. In the evening we go to the kitchen porch while the sun blasts the deck.Delete
I really like the railing on your decking. It looks fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thank you. It turned out better than we thought it wouldDelete
Looks beautiful! Nice work!ReplyDelete
