This is the back of our new house. You will note that there are two decks. An open deck off the living room and a covered deck off the dining room. Even if it is raining, I can sit outside. Since it is likely to rain often in the area, I am anticipating frequent episodes of enjoying the view from my covered deck.
When I heard the stove was a JennAir, I immediately began dreaming of built in gas grills . Then the landlady (you can see her in the pic) said the stove was electric, but the covered patio has a propane feed for a gas grill. You know I have one of those on my wishlist now.
In the meantime, that little path you see at the end of the steps leads to here. A propane fire pit. I am thinking that it will make a great place for a marshmallow roast. But probably not until at least spring. Still, I’m dreaming ….
It is almost time. I bought two new suitcases today. The one I took this summer didn’t survive the trip. It wasn’t very old, but I stored it for 3 years in a metal shed sans air conditioning and that must have weakened the plastics. At any rate, until we finally hit Friday Harbor I will continue to post and I’ll visit when I can, but you might be seeing less of me as things crank into action.

What a great and welcoming outdoor space. I wish I lived close enough to sit on that covered porch and have coffee with you, or to roast marshmallows in that firepit.

The decks look wonderful. And that grass is so green! We’re so far behind in rain that I haven’t seen really green grass in a while!

The decks look great – I ‘m guessing you’re going to have some great barbeques! 🙂

I love a covered porch. Sometimes I sit on my front porch and enjoy the rain, too. 🙂
We built a fire pit in our yard here. Although it is much farther from the house than your new one, we still love it. We also have a propane line on the back deck for a grill, which means when we moved in, I purchased my first (and only) propane grill. I love it! We grill year round now.
What a gem of a house!

And that fire pit looks like fun.

It looks great, but I wish there were more sunshine for you, Q. I know you are a sun person like me. Rain is so dreary. On the other hand, your environment will be lush and green.

Well Quilly, I studied this before sending. I don’t think that blonde sitting out with the fire pit is you. Does she come with the house? Oh … I reread, she is the landlady.
Our kitchen stove top (sits on top of a cabinet) is a propane JennAir. We have a propane feed on the backporch also but not a firepit. Not even a gas grill. Mrs. Jim gave that grill away.
I don’t barbeque as I think the whole idea is a conspiracy against men to get them to cook. All you have to do is praise them a little for their food and they will cook till the cows come home.

A maze ing! I would die for a deck so I might look on out at the beautiful smog riddled Los Angeles sunsets BUT it is not to be. I know however you’ll thoroughly enjoy sitting out there just the two of you relaxing….. I just love it!
Have a wonderful rest-of-the-day Quilly!

The house looks lovely – and what a wonderful thing to have a covered porch and an open one! I’m so happy for you! May the move be easy and as trouble-free as moves can be. Be gentle with yourselves, it’s exhausting even when it goes well. But a home of your own is something special. Congrats.

Nice place! And the fire pit sounds inviting. You are going to have a much different environment to photograph. Good luck on your move!

OMG that grass is so green! How nice it will be to have a nice deck to sit out and enjoy your surroundings. I can totally picture 2 padded rocking chairs, or a nice glider to go on your deck.

Your new home is beautiful Quilly, I can see you and The Amoeba having lots of barbecues. Your enclosed Patio, well I can see you spending a lot of time there.

I imagine you’ll be VERY busy from this point on. I’m in awe that you’re able to post right now. I just love your new house. I can see why you’re excited to go there. I would be, too.

I bet youÂ´re getting really exciting! Looks great your place and IÂ´m sure youÂ´ll be happy there. It looks like your located near some woods too, or is that the neighbors trees and bushes? I really hope it all meets your expectations!
Looks like a great and peaceful place, sigh!
I can just imagine the fun you’ll have with that Firepit and the back porch 🙂

WOW…. what a beautiful home you will have. I love the fire pit. Hope you don’t mind, I’m going to borrow that photo of the fire pit. I will use it in a post in the near future, hopefully today.
