We renovated our terrace and built a new relaxation area

We built a new terrace
After more than 15 years, it was time for a proper refurbishment of the entire terrace. The fence needed to be replaced, we needed to change the pool lines, grind down and oil the wooden frame around the pool, replace the fence and while we were working we took the opportunity to expand the terrace. Since we have started to grow a lot of plants, flowers and vegetables we needed a large terrace where we can fit everything🙂

This is what the terrace and fence looked like before we started the project
This is what the old terrace looked like after we removed the fence and the interior
Here we have torn off the entire terrace, only the pool and the old pool liner that remains
Slowly but surely we start building the new terrace and as you can see it will be much bigger at the same time we built the whirlpool into the terrace
Here the whole terrace is ready and also the new fence is in place

Newly found interest in plants and crops

A great interest that has been added in recent years is the cultivation of basically everything that can be grown. It is everything from vegetables, herbs, flowers, shrubs and trees. We have a large greenhouse at the back of the garden where most things are grown, but not everything can fit there, so both the terrace and other areas in the garden may become new growing areas. It is so much fun to see everything that grows, to be able to eat according to the season and to be able to give away to families, friends and acquaintances.

Cultivations are underway here
Here you see the new pool liner and even more plantations and trees, when they grow they are planted out in the garden
We also have a lovely tent for hot sunny days and chilly and rainy evenings
The terrace was large but it fits our family well which consists of one 6 year old, two teenage children, 3 adults and lots of dogs and cats.
We were so happy with the new pool liner 🙂

Enjoying our new pool and terrace

This is our favouite area to spend quality time together as a family. There is something here for everyone wether it is cooling off in the pool, relaxing by the deck, heating up in the sauna or bubble bath or just hanging out in the lounge area.
