Now our deck is about a meter wider than it was at the front of the house, so you can have a lunch outside without one or two people feeling like they are going to topple over into the grass.
We also built a new wall on the South-facing part of the deck so it is even more private, and still allows you to enjoy the lovely view over the valley between Villers-la-Faye and Magny–les–Villers. This is a perfect place to have dinner as it is lovely and sunny right up until the sun goes down.
Whereas the front is shady from noon on so a great place to have lunch and enjoy the fetching view of the…uh…cement maker machine (can you tell that I am an expert on such matters?), yellow electrical tubing, and rusty wheelbarrow. But wait a second…what is that green stuff beyond all that construction stuff?
Oh that’s right – it’s vineyards! One just has to know where to look.
