One of my many guilty pleasures is watching home improvement shows. i tell myself I am not wasting my time, I am doing research. Anyone who lives in a house more than thirty years old needs to do research. How else can you make needed repairs without knowing how to go about it?
I have been amazed at how many times I have been told that “they no longer make that” or “it’s not to code”, when talking to repair men.
My most recent project was replacing my “deckett” (8 ft x 6ft) with a larger, actual deck. It is finished, properly stained and furnished (picture below) and I enjoy breakfast there most mornings, along with the usual backyard visitors.
I do have other, more ambitious projects planned for the backyard. What do you think, will it work? (See below).
