There’s nothing like entertaining at home to raise the urgency of fixing up one’s house.
My birthday’s coming up and I’ve already invited friends and family to come over for a housewarming/birthday barbecue, so I’ve been pressured to finish a home project with which I’ve been dillydallying: the roofdeck.
This week, we greened the concrete floor surrounding the grass. The original plan was just to leave the concrete floor as is, unpainted and “unfinished”, to go with the industrial look of the rest of the house, but we had some cracking issues on the deck because of the exposure to rain and sun. Solution was to take out the cracking layer of pure concrete (puro), and apply flexibond plus elastomeric paint. I chose a garden green color to unify the grass and non-grass portions of the floor.
Next step is to put a wooden box to encase the soil, and then go furniture shopping.
The grill is ready and waiting, and am happy to say that with the teak lounge chairs, the place is already coming together. Yay!
