~A small 1½ story they saw potential in.
Our family became the 2nd owners in the later 60’s.
The first big change was to raise the back-side roof creating a mUch bigger 2nd floor. . . a large concrete patio with stone bbq/fire place, and eventually, a kitchen window was replaced by a french door and a small deck!
Next is a simpler back view—free of shutters, and the small deck railing sections removed for the addition of a huge 2nd level/step down deck.
MY scope of work was to build an addition on the front -enlarging and squaring up the living room- renovating essentially every square inch of interior house, REworking the whole backside outdoor living space, and REworking the gardens.
the next cool addition!
I found two antique theatre seat frames on Craig’s list— $20!
They’re from the turn of the century.
They’re so AWEsome!
And here’s my plan—
Often enough, there will suddenly be extra people hanging around the dining table—sometimes pulling up extra chairs, usually leaning against the railings. So I want to spread each seat frame apart to create a double seat, and affix them to the deck rails to the left & right sides of the large planter.
