This is how it looks today: the deck in the back of our house. I am not very happy about the location and design of the deck: in Iceland you need to be very careful designing houses and surroundings because the sun is very low all around the year and makes long shadows – you need to make all the efforts caching the most of the daylight. Also you see the stairs? Not the most children friendly layout. The wall in front of the windows of living room hiding the most beautiful mountain view ever: builder’s mistake or careless architect? Now I need to deal with what I have got and going to make the best possible to get the cozy family friendly deck.

I would like to have some cozy siting and storage there:
and a small pond:
Have I mentioned flower pots?
I am working on the final layout of the deck and soon will show it to you. Hope tho have “after” to the end of the summer.
