Kiawah House: Deck

One of the first projects that my dad tackled at the Kiawah house was the old deck overlooking the lagoon {the same lagoon that is home to a big gator named CJ}.

The deck was old, kind of falling apart, and had steps that led straight down to the lagoon. Seriously. The steps stopped about 5 yards away from it, so we decided that the steps needed to be on the other side of the deck {away from the lagoon} when it was rebuilt.

All of these pictures are compliments of my dad. Somehow, in all the pictures I took of the house, I never got the deck. Probably because I was too focused on trying to see a little gator.

 & if you look closely, these weren't even supposed to be pictures of the deck. My dad was taking pictures of all of the birds in the background. Check out the back right of the deck, you can see the old steps heading down towards the lagoon.

More steps, birds, & hooks.

 Again, this wasn't supposed to be a picture of the deck. It was supposed to be of the sunlight streaming through.

 Check out the icky old table & chairs.

 View from the living room door.

 New steps leading towards the front of the house/street rather than the lagoon - yay!

Other side of the deck.


The new steps! Woo! Yay!

There's still some staining and painting to do, but for now, the construction is complete. Because you can see these steps at the same time as the front steps, they might get painted/stained in the same fashion. But we'll have to wait and see!
