The design would involve removing the old, rotted, and unsafe deck and replacing it with a 16'x20' deck with a pergola. Part of the deck would still be allocated for grilling and would add space for outdoor dining. To help with that, I would build a 2'x4' island on wheels. I would pour the concrete counter and build the supports on casters. This would allow counter space to supplement grilling, bar space to supplement entertaining, and potting space to supplement my plant obsession.
One of the reasons I started this blog was to take you through my renovation journey so that we can both learn to make our homes Pinterest-worthy and magazine-ready. My boyfriend, Taylor, bought his grandparents home 2 years ago and let me tell you my mind was going crazy with all the possibilities. Once Taylor talked me down from my lofty ideas to expand the upstairs and take down half the walls, we started getting some renovations started.
