Last Christmas we demolished our pergola area in preparation for work to commence on a much larger under cover outdoor space. It took a few months after that (5 in fact!) before the structure finally started.
Once it did start, it was a continual procession of tradies and all was finally competed about 6 weeks ago. Watching all our planning come into fruition has been exciting. We have been enjoying the space so much, it's great to have an outdoor area again.
Here are a couple of before shots.
And here is what it's like now! Having the blinds make it such a protected area if the weather turns bad or is a bit windy. I LOVE IT!!!
Our son Daniel built the walls and rendered them and also built the outdoor bbq area. I am often found after work hours sitting in a tub chair with my feet up, having a cuppa or cold bevvy, reading, checkout things on my ipad, or chilling with family and friends!
We will be enjoying Christmas at our place this year with some of my family.
Enjoy your day !
