    Although it's not done, I wanted to show you our new sliding glass doors and decking! The deck needs steps, banisters and a facia board. There won't be any railing ....... The deck boards have special clips on the sides to hold them down...no nails or screws to worry about when you're shoveling snow!



    The doors need to have the final texturing done and the base board.....



    I LOVE it!!! I've waited 5 yrs to get this! Originally, where the doors are was a small window. The deck was half this size and AWFUL! The guy that built it used scrap wood from neighboring houses that were being built. You couldn't sit on it and have a BBQ on it at the same time. It had railing that blocked ALL view!!!

    I really like the new door and deck, alot. But you might need to rethink the lack of a railing. Where I live, that deck would be a code violation without one. It's too high off the ground to go without.

    You did good work!!! Our outside will have to be redone too but not til next year at the earliest. We have been looking at the same type of door with the louvers inside. That way we won't need curtains (not good with dogs) and the vinyl blinds are not attractive.

    Enjoy those BBQs.

    We did look into the code. It's actually 8" under code heighth.....meaning we don't need a railing. The picture is deciving.....if I really stretch this old body, I can step directly onto it! :)

    I LOVE the "inside" blinds that are in the doors. DO get them if you can. We live in a dusty area and I hate washing drapes and/or blinds. Now I just have more windows to wash! LOL
