The deck's all done


Though it was not part of the original plan, it became clear that it was necessary to shelter the back doors (they’re double doors) with a small porch roof. Water coming off the roof was falling too close to the door.

It’s just a short distance from the deck to the woods on the downhill side and back. On the uphill side the deck faces the orchard-to-be. When the back doors are open, the deck is irresistible. I’ve noticed that people walk into the house from the front door and are drawn straight to the deck. The deck is always visible through the glass doors, so it makes the house seem larger.

The one thing that’s incomplete in this photo is the roof over the small porch. Right now it’s just covered with tar paper. Green metal roofing is on the way.

    Who did your deck? Was it spendy?
