    Are your front and rear decks actually attached with a walkway? Is your shop actually part of the main building, or was it built afterwards, and just butted up next to the house?

    Yes the Front and Rear Decks are attached.. there is a Door that goes onto the Walkway from the Kitchen.
    See this Pic:

    The Shop is attached to the house. fully insulated so i dont have to go outside or put on shoes to walk into the shop from the Main house.

    pretty much one of the main reason's i got this house

    Wow, you're really going all clean slate on this back yard! Will you be seeding or sodding? This seems like a good time to bury some water lines, but you guys may not even have to worry about watering your lawns out on the "Wet Coast"?

    we will just be seeding. its the cheaper way.. lol.

    not putting any water lines in, if its dry enough for the lawn to need watering, then the city wont allow watering.. lol. so no point.

    Wow, looking good Ben!! So much work, isn't it? I have been helping an uncle refinish an old home he gutted...always find extra things to do, or better designs, or prettier things.

    That shop will be awesome. I would like to have something like that someday. Then I could justify a "project" car. hehe

    We bought a new Townhome here in Kelowna and I've been wanting to do lots still. I did recently sheet part of my garage with plywood to hang some industrial shelves on and for hooks and stuff to ... hang and hook stuff. My dad had these awesome shelves from a store he remodeled, and it's so nice to be organized now instead of crap in piles in mystery sterilite boxes! (If you every need more plywood and are in Kelowna...let me know - my dad has 100's of sheets of 22"x4' from coffins I make for cremating people at a funeral home).

    Been here over a year already and still lots of stuff to do...mostly decorations and stuff to just fill the house - to make it feel more and more like a home :)

    In the Langley municipality you can have a tall fence however it can't be within 6 feet of the road allowance. Which I accounted for. You can see the shorter bit that's heading from the gate to the road.

    Nice, not sure why people are against tall fences anyways. I'd sooner look at a nice fence than the shit in most people's backyards.

    I need a fence by the way, so if you have a free weekend, by all means.
