I like big decks and I cannot lie.
Progress is being made in the barn front. While the upstairs apartment will be very small, Ryan and I decided to add a very large deck off the back. We kindly refer to this as the BIG DECK. It will essentially allow us to expand the living space. It’s also has an amazing view of our property and it’s a place we can hang out until we build a house.
Ryan has built several decks in his days, but this is the largest and highest to-date. Thanks to the help of our friend Ian, Ryan got the frame up in a day. Since then, he’s gotten all the cedar decking boards down and will work on the stairs next. He’ll be installing a railing similar to our front porch and then making the support beams a little more sightly. Lots of work, but, oh, the rewards!
And Ryan insists upon having a BIG DECK PARTY before the snow flies. I kindly reminded him that we have no – ahem – restroom facilities. But, Ryan insists the party must go on.
