The Terrace

Look at this gorgeous porch/terrace! Ours was supposed to be this wide but Lloydy's creative licence, with the pool size, reduced the size of our terrace out the back somewhat! Now that we have the pool fence up, the size is just perfect for us though. We plan to place an outdoor kitchen (fridge, sink, BBQ and bench) at one end of the terrace and an outdoor lounge setting, like this, at the other. It's difficult when one gets to this stage of the project though as you don't want to spend one more cent.... but then if you don't finish it, what was the point of the whole exercise?

It will be finished... hopefully before hubby's 40th birthday, in September (he's younger than me!). Picture twinkling fairy lights on the terrace, black tie attire, beautiful live guitar music by Adam O'Connor (www.adamoconnor.net), champagne and merriment! We have booked Adam for 2+ hours.

This is where we are at, with the pool and terrace at the moment.

Don't mind the bags of cement at one end of the terrace! Lloydy will be back, once this rain has stopped, to completely finish the pool... it should be finished by the end of next week. My little 6 year old stands at the pool fence and just gazes out to the empty pool (we've never had a pool before). Even though it is winter here, there will be one very happy little boy here next week, when it is all finished.

  5. Terrace looks great! I was pleased to see a pic of your pool fencing as it looks to be the same as what I've ordered for our pool fence which will sit on our Alfresco deck. Looks great!

    The night in Sept will be fantastic, I can just picture you all out there with your guests, lovely.
