New Deck

We are having a deck added to the back of our house, and I couldn’t be more excited! The deck builders came on Thursday to dig the holes and pour concrete, but today the frame went up and it’s really becoming a reality!

This deck was our inspiration, but we wanted our deck to surround the tree. Under our giant tree is one of the best places to be during the Summer, but the grass was really sparse up there and it somehow became Sirius’s favorite pooping ground UGH. We wanted it low to the ground with just one step down and no railings. We are having stairs added to come down from the existing side porch, and all new basement doors & stairs too.

Next we plan to run some nice lighting through the trees. I’ve been looking at these on Amazon because I wanted good high quality ones, but they are on the pricier side so I’d love to hear if any of you use outdoor lights & your thoughts.

***Thanks for all the thrift shopping comments, I loved reading the things that you all look for. It’s funny how a lot of you look for the same things, and Goodwill and their crazy prices–good to know I’m not alone with that one either!
