Hubster and I never use the back of our house… It’s the one side of our house that has a neighboring house. Four years ago we planted a dozen small blue spruces, last year we rocked, mulched and planted roses along the house. This weekend Hubster added a deck. My FIL helped him frame it on Saturday, my MIL and I pitched in also.
Sunday, Hubster added the planks and started the railing (just one side left to finish). I helped him in between loads of laundry… He was so dedicated he worked in the rain and in the dark, trying to get it finished.
It was a much-needed improvement, it is a very looong side of our already loooong ranch. The deck breaks up the length of our house definitely gives it more appeal. This is a prime location for grilling, I walk right out my kitchen door on my new deck. I plan to grow my herbs in planters on the deck. I can’t wait to move my grill to the deck and make dinner. Once Hubster has the last of the railing finished, I’ll be able to landscape around it.
Hubster is a good man… sometimes. 🙂
