The final outdoor project on this house is now complete: the back deck has a new floor. Fortunately the structure itself was sound (which is a good thing since it’s 20 feet above the ground) but the flooring definitely needed replacing. Bill has had to pull too many splinters out of my bare feet not to change those out. It took several days, separated by a couple of weeks of non-stop rain, but only cost about 400 bucks in materials to make that outdoor area look brand new. With Mr. Fixit in command and me as the trusty helper we saved around $1200 in labor which happens to equal the cost of an air ticket to Paris. Hmmm, ideas anyone?
Here are the before and after photos and now we are much closer to being ready to sell the house.The good news is that while we were working out there the neighbor behind us called out to say that his brother was looking to buy a house and that ours would be ideal. Bring him on over!
