Deck After and Before

With our new awning we're now ready to enjoy the afternoons on our big, beautiful new deck. We have a great view of our trees. At night there is a dull roar of frogs and insects coming from the trees. I love it. Sadly, the fireflies are not as prolific as they were in June. We miss them, but are glad Brittany got to see them in their full glory.

These pictures were taken in the morning, and the sun is still hot under the awning. It does, however cool the house off when it's open.

We have a big, fancy staircase that goes off the deck in two different directions. We plan on making a stone patio in the back of the house, with a walkway at the back side of the deck. We're tired (not to mention poor) now, however, and leaving that for next year!

There is no real "Before" picture for the deck, but just in case you want to see the difference, here is a picture of the back of the house when we bought it, complete with it's door to nowhere right off the kitchen!
