Summer Backyard Makeover



Summer-time living just got a whole lot nicer this year thanks to a few days work! The backyard at my home was not a place where anyone wanted to spend time. In fact, the only time spent there was pushing a mower once a week. Not exactly how I wanted to spend my summer! With a bit of thought we came up with a plan. We added a nice Azek deck (no splinters, no painting). We purchased an inexpensive screen door and added a nice starfish detail using my router. Living by the beach, an outdoor shower is a necessity, so I purchased a round shower curtain rod and with a few screws had a nice place to wash the sand away. My family collected rocks from the beach and we surrounded a piece of bluestone with them to make the floor. We added some flowers around the deck, and it is now a place we all look forward to enjoying. Bring on the BBQ!!!
