I love our new deck!
Our deck is finished. Well almost, just a few finishing touches still needed but we can use it and it is wonderful. The jarrah with the black trims has turned out even better than I had hoped.
It is also much bigger than I imagined and, as it is very high, I feel like I am almost in the clouds! No, I haven't had one wine too many!
Unfortunately our neighbours on one side aren't happy, as our deck has taken some of their view of the mountain from their kitchen window. They have a deck too though, so they would still have their view from there. I talked to them before we had it built and said I hoped it wouldn't upset them and they said we were entitled to have a deck and not to worry. Of course now their feelings have changed. I hope things improve as I don't like having a bad relationship with neighbours!
Our laundry is under the house and I decided to strip wallpaper off it and paint it, so I have been quite busy this week. Have to give it the final coat today. The paint has certainly brightened it up.
Hope you are all well and happy!
