We finally did it, we needed scaffolding as the ceiling is approx, 15 feet tall, I believe, and is a 16x20 in length and wide, a large area.
We wanted the underneath to have a rich design to it so we opted to do it ourselves.
We needed 70 planks of 12 foot sections of pine, tongue and groove, and we stained and clear coated each and every one of those suckers, took much longer than anticipated. OH, and be sure to do this BEFORE YOU INSTALL ON THE CEILING.
Also installed a ceiling fan, mainly to keep the bugs away.
Also installed AZEK crown molding, and inside the crown molding is LED rope lights that have like 16 vary of colors and chase each other too, and its so pretty. Such an awesome look and we are so happy the outside area is finally done :)WE got those at Costco for a steal.
Well landscaping is never really DONE in my eyes, I just love to play in the dirt and plants lots of stuff.
My photo skillz have dropped off and pics aren't as clear from beginning to end, but your get the jist of it. Here are a ton of pics, and some misc updated pics of our home.
I have an unbelievable husband with super manskillz, always so proud of him :)
