We moved into the house 10 years ago and although a 1/2 acre rear yard was great for our dogs, there was nothing but a 3x6 ft. porch on the back for getting in and out. We wanted to create a space where we could sit out and enjoy the the space. I started with a plan I created in the free version of SketchUp and proceeded to place a large order for redwood-toned PT lumber from Home Depot and thus the adventure began. Working on weekends from September to December, with travel and holiday breaks, we finished the main construction at the end of December. In the last week I have finally coated it with a coat of water seal and three coats of exterior urethane on all the handrails.
