Adding A New Deck On A Tiny House –

By Living Room Realty, November 26, 2020


   Our seller, Kurt, had already done a great job of sprucing up the interior of his tiny home he wanted us to sell for him. He asked Chris and I  for direction on what to do with the backyard.  It didn’t make sense to either of us that the current deck be so small.  It lacked room for a barbeque and wouldn’t hold a decent sized chair. It felt like a smoking porch and nothing more.   We decided to bring in a carpenter to extend the current deck so it touched the original retaining wall.  We asked him to take the existing unstained fence panel and re-use the boards to make a  private screen without ‘gaps’. The seller and I stained the new fencing a dark walnut after the panel was completed.  Since I now had the sellers complete trust, I opted to paint the red fence panels a deep blue.  Using only painters tape, I marked triangles of all shapes and sizes to paint a decorative design for more intrigue.  Luckily, Kurt loved the end result.  Throw up some twinkling outdoor lights, new exterior fixtures, add a table and chair and TA-DAH!  Private seating and hangout area for the new owner to enjoy!  I love working with sellers that believe in us.  Give us your trust and we will take on your project as if it is our own investment.
