We have grand plans for the 5th level of the home ridge. An Octagonal deck with Fire Pit. …and we took the first steps(beyond thinking about it) today when we mapped out the probable position.
The area is 4 levels down from the road, and to the west of the house. It has views back up the Kerry Valley to Beaudesert, views across the north end of the property, and views back to the South West to Mt Lindesay and Mt Barney. We thought that would be a good place for a deck.
It will be built(in fact overbuilt) entirely of treated pine sleepers and will stretch over 7 metres across at its widest points.
We are still a little way off starting the deck, as we have to finish the stairs down to that level. But staking it out gave us an idea of the work, the view and the plants etc involved.
Watch this space 🙂
