My Deck Dream

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. --John Muir

I'm a novice when it comes to real estate (one house), but I think that unless you're a tycoon and can drop cash on a house, a house chooses you as much as you choose a house.  

When I finally decided to leave apartment living behind and buy a house in the Atlanta area, I put in five-ish offers that all fell through before I landed in my house.

The original *must have* list included a deck, but I dropped that from the list, thinking I could easily add one in a year or two.  Well, I'm approaching year two, so plans are in the works.  I have to do something simple, and the ground-level decks are Midcentury anyway, so I think a platform deck is the way to go.

Here's one from a Lowe's tutorial:

Wouldn't it be fun to do something like this, too?

For a bit longer, it's just dreaming.

Outdoor life, plan it out, diy,
