I've seen a lot of interesting decking ideas. The cheapest and simplest seems to be vinyl, for its low cost and easy installation. It also comes in a variety of patterns and colors, which seems like it would lend itself to broad applications.
I'm hoping to rebuild my kitchen cabinets soon. Mostly I just want to have a secret room behind them for another, smaller, dining room. That's where my wife and I will have meals together when we need to get away from it all.
Uncle Bobby came over for dinner yesterday. It was wonderful to catch up with him, as usual. He was telling me how he's looking for an industrial high pressure water cleaner for his next construction project.
I find the concept of converting your roof space into a giant balcony very interesting. It's definitely a more space-economical plan. I don't know if it would work too well in a house located somewhere where snows are heavy and frequent,though.
