Deck addition-dining

We are in the process of adding-on to the deck.
We wanted more space to sit, eat, grill and visit and
decided the area under the family room windows
would be a perfect expansion area

After much hard work

planning, digging and nailing,

we have a new outdoor dining space, 

and a sitting and visiting space.

The hand-rails still need to be cut and attached
to the new section and a new coat of stain and sealer added. 
I'm also thinking about putting window boxes
under the 3 windows and a storage box
for cushions and pillows.

More photos to come soon!
I've started taking some classes at
the community college, volunteering for
Hospice and I am registered for
the Spring semester so things
are moving in the right direction
for a career change.


  1. The new deck is wonderful. I know you will really enjoy it. Looks wonderful. Hugs, Marty

  2. A terrific addition Dena. It offers so much more seating and is in the perfect spot.

    I'm really happy for you. Some movement in the right direction is exactly what you need and deserve after a very difficult period of time.

  3. Good for you for the life changes!

    The deck looks great, you must really be excited about it.

  4. Looks really nice mom! I guess I'll have to come home so I can sit on it with you! :)

  5. wow! Love the new space! thanks for stopping by my blog!
