New Deck

We have the most plain boring backyard ever. We have been trying to think of things we can do to make it a welcoming and relaxing spot to hang out. Here is what it looks like:

Obviously our grass is green now that it’s summer.

So I’ve been thinking about building a deck. Have it come off the back of the house. And make it big enough to put a table and chairs. That way my husband and I can sit out there with a glass of wine and relax and talk and watch the lightning bugs. And I’m thinking this could be something that we build ourselves. I’ve been watching some YouTube videos on how to do it. However we aren’t the most handy of couples. My husband can fix a guitar but he’s never built a deck before. But it doesn’t look too bad, and if we don’t attach it to the house we don’t need to get a permit for it.

Here is a picture of something similar that we want to do.

Have any of y’all done this? Do you think we can do it?
