Hey awesome ones. Some of you don’t know this but, Bill and I, we used to have a gigantic home five bedrooms with a pool and a sauna and all that sort of thing. We have downsized because Bill’s mom she’s 93 and she lives in the heart of the city…. and of course we were living on the outskirts of the city. So we downsized to this home….and now that winter is over take a look at our little deck here. This was our umbrella and there’s not much left of it right now it’s a pretty sad looking and we can see a little bit of wear and tear there I don’t know if you can see a little Hurricane through the window there, that’s our kitchen but anyway what we’re trying to do is we want to have a little bit of an outside area you know to have coffee and and tea and and breakfast….that sort of thing.So we’re going to liven it up a bit this little tiny deck and we’re not going to spend a lot of money on i.t So check it out and let’s see how we do. So here comes Bill with our big purchase for this little project that we’re doing. We got ourselves a gazebo and it’s gonna fit all on the deck we’ve already measured it out and it was only about, only about 129 dollars eh Bill.So it should be a nice little outdoor indoor kind of thing…. well maybe easier said than done. All right Bill, so you got the instructions there? Oh yeah especially the caution. Does it look easy? Oh yeah how much can there be….really…I mean. Yeah easier said than done. This is volume one. Oh we’re not gonna give up right? Never give up. So Bill has everything all laid out. You’re quite the organized guy Bill. This was the easy part just laying it out. I see you’ve got your toolbox there….did I see some knee pads or something as well? Yeah, yeah I gotta have everything just in case.So how are those instructions coming along? Well sometimes the English isn’t the greatest thing on here. Let me read something okay. Okay all right…it says….’place big canopy ‘E’ onto top frame, but not expand before install the fourth upper bar. Oh boy. I guess I’ll have to put in a few little words in between to get the sentence, but hopefully, hopefully the diagrams are better than the sentences. We’ll figure it out. We’re at a part where we’re absolutely not too sure if we got this thing going right or not.Oh well, just keep going, right Bill? Have to keep going. Bill? Bill? Hey how’s it going? I don’t know….hey check back with me later and
I’ll let you know. I see your feet….okay we’ll check back with you later. Well Bill it’s starting to look like a real gazebo. Now I just want to point out too that we had to kind of reinforce it. A lot of these gazebos they go on to the ground. So we certainly learned our lesson about reinforcing. Remember that green one we had like years ago. It lasted about a week and we came out and it was gone. It was pretty well blown away. It was like a twister took it. Yeah and it wasn’t even a big storm.So Bill it’s really looking good. Yeah it’s taking shape. We had to stop last night because it was getting dark and cold and everything, but no it’s really starting and I think even little Hurricane….I think even little Hurricane is liking it a bit…. right? So one of the things that we want to do is we want to anchor this whole gazebo with a rug. Now we already had this rug, so Bill do you want to just put out the rug and we can sort of show what we’re doing here? Sure…. and that’s just gonna be a nice….well kind of rug for the bottom of this gazebo .Okay so I don’t know if you can see this, but it is a flamingo. We had it kind of backwards so there we go it’s it’s really a nice anchor and a nice setting for the rest of the furniture.Hurricane do you like it? Yep Hurricane gives us his approval. So one thing about…..you know….if you’re doing a new kind of design on a deck, try and reuse….these were just in the garden, Since we have the flamingo….since we have the Flamingo look out there…. I’m gonna just You know I love a touch of whimsy, so I’m just going to shine some of these guys up and sort of reuse what you already have until you run out and don’t go out and buy something right away maybe you can just reuse recycle.Now we’ve got some old furniture….it definitely needs a little bit of life, but we want to make two distinct areas in here. One for eating and one for lounging. You’ll see how old these chairs are I mean, but they’re nice chairs…. there….they may be old but, Bill do you want to show how they rock and they swing? We need a cushion on it. Yeah of course, but I’m just sort of showing everybody that they’re not brand new chairs…there something that we kind of got out from….well gosh these have to be about 10 years old right Bill? At least! Now we did make a small purchase we bought some new cushions and really wanted to liven it up out here, so Bill do you want
to put that cushion on that old chair? You’ll see that right away our little eating area has got a little bit more life to it and we also had these other decorative items just sort of hanging around down in the garage from last year.So we’re making it… It’s starting to shape up into a a nice little eating section. So we’re working on a little lounging area, you know this is a nice little area….we’re not eating here we’re just lounging….Bill this is perfect for kicking back. Looks good to me. Not not yet Bill we still have a lot to do as a matter of fact….yeah yeah yeah let me just show one of the things we have to do. More decorating and a little bit more….watch this….remember folks, always to take those numbers…you know the ones that are ‘A’ and ‘B’ and all that sort of thing. Make sure you take those off okay. So it’s really really starting to take shape and this isn’t just a little gazebo either you know for the amount of money we spend like it’s really really high.You certainly don’t have to duck and I know…. Hurricane you seem to be really liking it. Bill’s liking it too. So here’s another view of our gazebo and as you can see we have another….there’s more to the deck…and we have another big table if we want to move it inside for more people enjoying dinner with us and it’s a real mess down here, but we’ll show you that we actually still have a yard down here, but any who. So let’s just sort of walk into this new gazebo that we’ve built and as you can see I’ll just pull the curtain back. So this is the gazebo that Bill and Heather built with a little help from a package. This is our kind of like….little sitting area where we would have our breakfast or something like that and you can just see as I showed you before this is going to keep all the elements out. It’s going to keep the bugs out because it’s completely screened in.Now as you can see little Hurricane is sitting there, but I understand Bill, Hurricane is not happy. I’m in his seat. That would be my seat over there so, but what I want to do right now, Bill snap your fingers….cuz we’re gonna show them in a second what it looks like at nighttime…. go ahead. So isn’t this a nice ambience? Hey awesome ones. Hey awesome ones. So we finally did it. We finished the indoor/outdoor room and it is awesome. Yeah I love it. It only took us a few hours to do and I don’t know if you know this but it’s all screened in
so keeps the bugs out and it’s got this great roof to keep you, know the sunlight and the rain and all that sort of thing and thanks for joining us on this video it’s it’s kind of funny because now when we are doing a project or something, Bill and I are like oh my gosh you know let’s do a video on it.
