Dennis, owner of Gecko Construction did a great job on the siding, and on the patio. How one guy can get those big beams in place by himself gives me a whole new appreciation for the craftsmen that do this for a living.
What can we say, the summer will see us outside much more this year because of this.
So far the birds are really cool to watch and the stars are perfect for gazing (without having to worry about bugs in the lawn crawling onto the blanket). It seems like a lot more people look at the place as they drive by too, I guess it’s interesting gazing for them as well.
It’s been rather rainy this spring, so we had corrugated plastic put underneath the balcony. There’s an umbrella for the top of the balcony. Check it out; we’re set for Oregon weather without having to simply watch it from inside!
Another “shout out” I’d like to make is to Benham Electrical Service. Before we could put the balcony up the main electrical feed into the house had to be moved over about 15 feet. If he fits into your timeline his price is worth it.
Best thing, okay maybe just another one of the best things: the sunsets are amazing!
Now all that’s left is to figure out what color to paint the trim.
