Introducing...The Courtyard!

The deck is finished and has taken on a new name: The Courtyard! We love our new space and are excited to begin spending time out there! It's been rainy much of the weekend but the little we were out there Hannah thoroughly enjoyed herself! Her favourite thing right now is climbing up and down the little step. Here are some pics of the finished space!

Picture of the outside. I like how Tim built it right down into the ground so that nothing can take up residence under there.
What a difference a week makes!!
After! Thanks SO MUCH Tim!!
We don't have any furniture yet but I have my eye on a set and am hoping that it's going to go on sale. We also have a little ladybug pool that we'll fill up for Hannah to enjoy. I'm soaking some morning glory seeds that I'll plant in a planter at the bottom of the long wall and hopefully later this summer we'll have beautiful flowers climbing. It's so much fun to finally be able to use a space that was virtually useless until now!

Now I'm dreaming about putting a little deck at the front of the house next year and getting rid of the cement step that is currently there.....


  1. Having a deck or courtyard like that is like adding another room to the house! It's perfect with lots of privacy. Wonderful! I'm sure you and sweet baby girl will thoroughly enjoy it!

  2. I love your new courtyard. What a lovely safe space for Hannah to play and for you to enjoy watching her. Do you think Tim would come to Portland Oregon?
    Enjoy your new space.

  3. love it, I love the way he allowed you a pace to keep the tree.

    FYI Morning Glory is poisonous. Just something to keep in mind.

  4. I am feeling jelly over here. My backyard is in need of something like that ASAP!!! I can't wait to see more pics in the future.
