You may recall that one of my core values is outdoor seating. This definitely came into play when we were house hunting back in 2012 and also when it came time to prioritize house projects. Since closing on our dream home-to-be two years ago, we’ve dedicated a lot of time, elbow grease, sweat, and dirt (lots of dirt) to making over the backyard. And now it’s finally at a point where we can just live and enjoy our outdoor space! No more rotting wood, “Descend at Your Own Risk” signs, temporary fences, leaky ceilings, plywood safety barriers, or dimly lit pathways.
For the final part of our outdoor space renovation, we forwent the DIY route and hired a construction company to demolish and rebuild our mudroom. The company also put up safety rails for the back steps and around the basement stairwell.
The only thing we need now is consistent springlike weather!
