All Decked Out (Part Three!)

It may seem to all of you like a mere three weeks since the deck project began, but in reality, we are starting our sixth week. When this week draws to a close, the deck will be completed. Here's what has taken place since I last posted.

The flooring is in place and it looks absolutely beautiful. I never realized how much like real wood outdoor flooring could appear. Stepping from the breakfast room out onto the deck is a smooth transition.

The shingles are all in place, and the addition has been added beautifully to the house.

The tray ceiling went in, as well as the electricity, and the fan has been mounted.
The rails went up around the open area, and the solar light caps were put into place. I'm very pleased with the way the railing looks. I had the option of choosing what the other neighbors had on their decks, namely the standard white rails, or to go a bit different with this rail with the black bars. I'm so happy that I did this. It looks a bit more high-end, and makes the space feel so much more open. I couldn't be happier!

During this last week of construction the guttering will be installed, the screening will go up, and the support posts will be wrapped in the composite material. As soon as everything is completed, you just know that I'm going to be dragging that rug out onto the deck and starting to move out the furniture. I can hardly wait! Come back next week and see what it all looks like.
