Hello and happy Monday! Did you have a great weekend?! Are you off for the 4th of July? What are your plans? I’m excited to see some fireworks. =)
So today, I’m going to discuss the front of my house.
More specifically, what to do for a deck/porch/entry to the front.
I’m now at a place financially where I can think about the exterior of the house and what to do to improve the entrance. If you don’t remember or just because I like repeating myself =). I was (still am) paying for everything as I go because you can’t get a mortgage for a tiny house. Hence why the projects and items have taken so long to acquire or to do. Well, and I’m kinda in-decisive. That could also be a big part of it.
Anyways, I’ve been wanting a portable deck or stair set up since day one but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I have a few ideas but am unsure which to go with. I just said I was in-decisive, right? =)
Here’s my goals for this item for my house:
a) it must be mobile so that I can pack it up and take with me if/when I move again.
b) it must be big enough to fit my grill and/or chairs up on it’s surface OR not distract from those items if they are left on the ground level. There is a 31″ difference between the ground and my front door.
This height is comparable to RV’s so I’ve been looking at portable RV decks like these:
I’m leaning towards style #1 because I like how the black structural support would blend into my skirting. Both manufacturers are around the same price so I’m not too concerned about that and that won’t be a deciding factor (are you shocked?!?!) Style #2 is made from aluminum and is lighter in weight plus easier to set up so that is a win in my book for that one. Next post I’ll discuss the size issue because I feel I could go on all day about that – it’s more complicated than it seems. =)
So which style do you like best?
