After being back in NJ for a full day, I realize how much I appreciate running water… and electricity… and cable boxes that work. Although our recent trip to Rincon was far from ideal when all of those things went array on us, I still feel sulky being back to civilization.
The weather is getting better in the northeast and spring flowers are out.
My favorite watering hole is open early this season because of Hurricane Sandy http://on.fb.me/17jYCsJ
and we have a few interesting projects going on at work, so I won’t sulk too long.
Here is what we finished while in Rincon
Bob and our friend Sal worked hard getting the deck roof up, we still don’t have a cover for it but at least the face boards and beams are anchored into the cement nice and tight.
We planted several more trees and did a pretty big clean up in the yard.
Now to the question of what to cover the deck with?
Our first inclination was to only use a white tarp that we can remove during nice weather. But truthfully I think I want a metal roof so we can enjoy the deck as an extension of our living space.
I was thinking I might even paint the inside of the roof a bright blue to lighten it up.
I could use some ideas. Any thoughts??
