We've lived here for ten years this spring. From day one we had a vision for this old deck to be turned into an expanded living space... a comfy, casual family gathering place to build relationships, community, and our sports watching agenda. :) For ten years we have pinched away pennies into a "Be Your Own Banker" account and it is really exciting to say... "It's time"! That account has grown enough that we can finally build our deck into the family room we've desired so long. Beyond thankful for stability to do so, an ever so time-giving father-in-law, and a very, very hard working husband. Phase one started a couple weeks ago with tearing down of the old deck. Stay tuned! The rest is coming down soon!
