Backyard Transformations: Love Family
Do you enjoy love stories? Well, this story is not entirely about love in a sense we are used to but it is rather a love for change and transformation. This is a story of how Sarah and Peter Love have overcome obstacles and transformed a dull backyard into a gorgeous double deck area with lots of amazing socializing features.

Double Deck Makeover by Love Family
The story begins when the couple first moved to Alabama, and when they bought a 1940′s cottage with an expansive green lawn. However, despite the gorgeous exterior of the house, the outdoor area was not very impressive:
There was one measly uncovered deck and some seriously spotty landscaping.
After five months of overhaul the backyard had an incredible outdoors that featured double decks: one covered deck upstairs with a screened porch on the first level. After renovation there was 850 square feet of outdoor living space added. Of special feature is the arched iron gate that the couple has included into the design.
Switching out just the gate was an easy, low-cost way to revive the fence without replacing the whole thing.

Among other features of this beautiful backyard are the numerous relaxation spots, to read and just have an afternoon nap. Love couple particularly wanted an outdoor eating area, where they could enjoy the Alabama nature and climate. They have dedicated 200 square meters of deck to the eating area.
When the weather is good, we eat breakfast and dinner here as much as we can.
Apart from the aforementioned areas, there is also an entertaining space, featuring the hardwood floor that extends in other areas of the deck to connect the backyard space. The furniture in this wonderful outdoors are from teak sofa and chairs, which have mildew-resistant cushions; an outdoor rug from Dash & Albert is UV-treated, which means that it is resistant to fading.
