Before and After

My biggest project this year was to create a dry space under our deck, install a walkway and patio area outside the pool fence.  I definitely bit off more than I could chew with this one, but finally finished it! 

I had a hard time finding 'Before' pics... what can I say, it looked awful so I avoided taking pics in this area:

AFTER:
(you can't tell from the pics but we installed plastic panels & gutters under the deck so now we have a perfectly dry area to sit.  Good thing since all we get is rain this year!)

Tracy - the difference is breathtaking. It must have been so much work, but it has really paid off.

Well done!

(And no wonder you haven't had time to blog, stalkers aside!)
