Well we got about as far along as I was expecting for the weekend. We managed to get all the posts dug, and cemented in place that run the length of the driveway; which means we’ve got 2 posts left for the back portion of the fence. It also means we got a chance to start framing in the deck at the side of the house, which I’m hoping we can have some boards down on sometime this week, maybe Wednesday after work. Thanks to everyone that stopped by and helped again today. Here are some photos and the layout / plan we came up with originally.
Part of our plans for this summer were to rebuild the deck at the side of the house and extend it into a small square back yard surrounded by a fence. We regularly use the side door as our main entrance and have never had a roof there, so when it’s raining and you’ve got groceries, or BBQing to do, you get wet. We’ve opted to put a roof over the side porch, and leave the back deck exposed. Somehow we’ve also managed to keep our 3 parking spots and a shed at the back for our tenant. Here are some before, demolition and construction photos. Not much really to see yet.
