As a reminder this is how our old deck looked from this same viewpoint.
We liked our old deck, but being that it was almost 30 years old, even though it doesn't look like it in the above photo, it was in need of some major repair. Many of the boards needed to be replaced and while we contemplated just building a new deck, we thought we'd probably use this space a whole lot more if it were screened.............and we'd sort of always dreamed of having a house with a screened in outdoor space..............so we went for it and we honestly couldn't be happier! Bugs are so bad here in Kentucky, and it's so nice to be able to enjoy being outside without having to hose yourself down with bug spray.
And now I'll shut up and just show you a boatload of pictures. ;)
Sorry for the picture overload. Thanks so much for checking out our new screened in deck! And thanks to all those who've stuck around over the last year waiting for me, the slowest blogger that ever was, to finally reveal the whole shebang!
