As you may recall, I posted a couple of months ago about the changes we are planning on making to the exterior of our house this summer. Well, I have an update and a few pictures of the progress so far.
We had to rethink the design of the new deck because our first choice turned out to be way more money than we wanted to spend. So we cut the size of the deck by quite a bit and decided to put in a new concrete pad instead. We can put some chairs and a small table out on the new pad while still having a small deck/porch leading up to the new front door. Here are a few pictures to illustrate:
This is the new concrete pad. This was going to be deck space in our original plan.
This is how things look from the sidewalk in front of the house.
And here is an updated rendering of the “new plan”…
Once Rick gets the deck built, we can put in the new front door. Until then, we are using the back door since that first step is kind of a doozy! Visitors beware!
