So, here’s the truth guys: I’m terrible at blogging because one little technical glitch and I become a complete idiot with regards to all things computer. Yes, I was having technical issues with the posts and so that’s one of the main reasons for the long delay between updates. That and we had a tremendously busy summer and fall so far! Which, of course, we are extremely grateful for. So here’s the fall update for 2014.
We did finally get our summer Deck Beautification Project completed. I think I mentioned in my last post we were getting ready to tackle that, but we were waiting on the dove family to hatch a set of eggs. You see, a pair of doves decided that the eaves of the back porch was a perfect place for their nest. Well, they hatched not one, not two, but three sets of chicks this summer! They have moved on for the season, so we proceeded with our update project.
The first order of business was to finish off the ceiling. Once that was done (leaving the opening for the dove family, of course) we added a ceiling fan and festive lighting. We also painted the back wall to match the house color. Finally, we replaced a few boards in the deck and then put on a new coat of paint on. We’re very happy with the upgrades as it makes an already relaxing spot even more enjoyable now.
While we were at it we added a fresh coat of paint to the front deck as well. A nice fresh coat of paint can make a big difference and we also used a paint with an anti-slip additive as an upgrade. Safety first, guys!
Here’s a couple of fun little videos for you all to enjoy. The first one shows us as we rock out the painting of the back deck. The second is just us goofing off as we enjoy the fruits of our labor. Finally, the third video shows the painting of the front porch.
Have a great week everyone and I hope you can come visit us soon!
