Deck? Check.

It's official. We have added a 12 x 20 outdoor playroom to our house that H has already taken full advantage of.
I do think that he really thinks this space is for him. Luckily there will be plenty of room for some of his things (his sandbox, the kids picnic table) a long with our things (the grill, a patio set).

While it still needs to be stained, we are thoroughly enjoying it so far.
And there is just something about checking this project off the list that feels really good.

It looks so nice! I really wish we could afford to put a big deck of the back of our house, but if we had enough to do that, we would need to focus on the siding and roof first!

We will get a small deck this summer with some reclaimed wood off the other side of the back, but with just enough room for a few chairs and the grill. I'm still excited for that though!

Wow, what a wonderful addition!

I just power washed and stained my deck. I used Cabot stain (from Lowes), and it looks beautiful. Just a heads up on a really good product-- check out consumer reports for its' ratings.

I sound like a commercial...

You must all be so excited! We have loved having our deck, too. H now has a confined place where he can dart off from. Now, THAT is good news!

Oh, I am jealous! I want a deck so bad. I have to wait until we build our house. The kids would love this though!
