We have been waiting to get this done, since we had to tear out the back porch from the plumbing issues.
Luckily we got this done the day before 19 degrees temps hit.
I am so happy with the results and even spent this morning ordering sod. 800 sq ft will be here day before Thanksgiving from Northland Turf in Chino Valley. Can you believe you can lay sod when it's this cold. They assured me this is the perfect time to lay sod. I can't wait till next week. (of course you can see I wrote this all and never posted it)
We still need to add railing and steps to the deck, the steps will hopefully happen this weekend and the railing will have to wait till my Dad comes back in a few weeks. (still haven't got this part done)
Below is the start to end project.
Next week, seal the deck before it gets too cold & paint the house. We are still debating on colors. Iv'e got about 8 sample colors painted on the side of the house, can't figure out what one we want, yet! (got the deck sealed, looks beautiful, but still haven't painted the house and don't think we will get around to it till Spring)
We were both frozen solid when we got done, but still got right up the next morning and treated ourselves to a yummy early dinner. Once Spring hits our grass will be all filled in, other plants will be planted and our hot tub will be in(hopefully sooner on the hot tub). We will also add rock to non grass areas and front yard. Along with a picket fence all around the front yard.
