When we moved into our house, our dream was to build a lovely porch on the back. Something we could use 3 seasons of the year. Something that would make for an excellent photography studio. And a space to throw killer parties! We hired a contractor [Artisan Construction] and our vision for cottage meets barn came to life.
Before, we had a little covered stoop with steps leading down to an existing wooden deck pathway that met a floating deck in the yard. Our goal was to connect them into one massive deck playground.
[Which took about 2 months]
I don’t know all the finishes or fixtures, so unfortunately I cannot recommend them. But hopefully if you’re interested in a similar project you can show the photos to your contractor for inspiration.
