I built my first deck here in the Okanagan in 2014. I needed some outdoor space to enjoy the glorious weather here in the Spring, Summer & Fall...
My third deck was built in 2015 to replace an old rotten deck that had been there since before I bought this place. I wanted an area close to my storage shed that I could paint & have a bit of privacy while enjoying the weather.
I stained the wood with a redwood coloured stain so it would hold up to the elements & go with the blue grey of the siding.
As there was a rule against walls & fences between properties, I added copper trellis to each corner to add some privacy once the plants get established.
I also built corner planter boxes for both veggies, grapes & flowers.
A water feature to drown out any ambient noise, & because I love the sound...
Now I can use it to paint, or carve, or sit & enjoy a glass of wine, since I am surrounded by vineyards in my area.
Now I just need the snow to go away so I can go out & enjoy it again!
Here's to a new Year of possibilities!
