    Let me see your decks!

    Advertisements
    We are getting ready to look into getting a deck and I wanna see what you have or what your dream deck would be if you got one!

    Also if your comfortable with giving the info, what did you pay/how much square feet did you get?

    Boo, lucky. We were going to do a deck added on to our screen porch but decided to just go with a patio instead.

    Our deck that we were going to build ourselves this spring has turned out to now look suspiciously like a new heat pump.

    I hope you guys get some good ideas!

    I had to read the title of this post twice.

    Our deck dream turned into a basement renovation last fall. Maybe next year...

    I live to get families the best deals on Disney trips... and my services are free.

    You all are no help!

    And yea, we were going to do it last summer but that turned into furniture and saving for a new car.... now I am trying to get DH on bored before the deck becomes saving for baby! My only expense for baby for a while will be diapers and formula if BF doesn't work out... grandparents have everything else covered for like the first year

    Reality hit me last night when I was telling Justin that I'm almost half way through the pregnancy. We both were like, "ohhhh man this isn't going to be fun with two under two and we've got A LOT of crap to get together between now and then."

    DH did that to me too last year, btw. It seems if it's something I want it always ends up being put off and I said NO MORE.

    Well we (my family & I while DH was deployed) remodeled the deck on our old house- here are some before & after pictures.

    My favorite things we added were a little nook for a two top table and a "grill cove" that was just outside the back door & a step down from the main deck.

    I would rather have a cement or stone patio than a deck - way less maintenance.
