Well as the month of May draws to an end, we have been busy around our home with projects. We began with removing all the screen from our porch under our deck as it was really getting worn and unsightly. We had ideas for what we wanted to do with the porch, but our ideas got polished off during our most recent trip to Disney. We saw an idea at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort that we liked and ran with it. We decided to put a vinyl lattice wall on one end. Later on we hope to put up a rail along the entire length of the back of the porch with a small gate. Soon we will be getting TriCounty Roofing to underpin the deck with the DrySnap System so that when it rains, the water falls through the deck into channels to keep the porch nice and dry. Once this is all done, we want to get a hot tub under the porch. Sounds like a good 40th birthday present in October!
Here is the idea from Disney:
Here are the pictures from our project:
Secondly, my wife found a bench she liked and wanted me to build on Pinterest. Pinterest is becoming the death of me by the way! 🙂 This bench was built out of 5 2x4x8s. It was quite simple. I am going to probably make a few more for around our house. If you are interested in one let me know. Check it out.
