I am happy to announce that the construction of our deck is complete! That doesn't mean that I have the space decorated and ready to go, but that the building is done. The vocational school did an excellent job, and I think we may have a few people that want a deck of their own (built by them) after seeing ours.
Without further ado, here is the before, process, and after photos of our deck!

Something about that patio wasn't inviting!
(You can tell that my family is already enjoying it!)
The lattice was purchased at Lowes by my parents. It was my mother's day present and my husband's father's day present. And, boy, it makes a difference in the appearance!!!
We do not have any trees in our yard, but the trees from next door add a nice shade to the deck!
Next, we plan on:
- landscaping around the deck
- purchasing some potted plants
- picking out patio furniture
- looking at different storage options for Kate's toys and outside necessities
We do not plan on doing any of these things in the near future because we spent a lot on the deck itself. But, we always like to have goals in mind. You never know when you may hit a good sale! : )
