And with requests for a few more views of the deck, I give you our beautiful new addition:
It adds so much to the house
Here is the view from the driveway. Josh has done a lot of work at the base of the stairs. He has made concrete pavers and then laid gravel around them to help with the sticky mud that we deal with. We have been able to test it out a lot recently with all of our rain and it works great.
Josh also built one more addition at my request. I asked for a gate that would stretch across the deck separating the arctic entry door and stairs from the rest of the deck. The gate Josh built works wonderfully. The way Abigail can be out on the deck playing and I don’t have to worry about her getting to the stairs but at the same time people can come up the stairs and in the house without hassling with a gate, it is perfect.
