I Forgot to Mention...

...that my landlord is building me a deck!! Yep. That's right... and it may be done within the week. I'll post photos as he progresses, but my small one bedroom apartment will soon have some outside living space! I'm so excited!

So here's a pic the back of my house Sunday afternoon. The balcony up top is my apartment. What you can't tell is that the whole left side of the first floor has just been built-out. He did that in one week. In addition, the roof line above the first floor has been built out, roofed with shingles, and a drainage system has been added so that when the deck is built above it, the water will run off properly.

Sometime with the next few weeks, my landlord is also going to reframe and paint the walls and ceiling of the balcony and the whole back of the house will be a taupe-like color, darker than the primer that he has on the first floor. The upper deck will come out from the balcony plus an additional 6 or 7 feet. And after the deck it done, my landlord is going to build another deck underneath for him with enough room for his car to be parked beneath. Incredible!

I can't wait!!
