The Upper Deck

We have a deck outside our bedroom French doors.

The deck outside the master bedroom needs a railing.

It needs to have a railing around it since it is one story above the ground.

Although our house is not brick I love the look of the Chippendale railing on the second floor porch.

I have some plans for my carpenter who I hope can fashion me a beautiful Chippendale railing.

The French doors lead o the master bedroom.

I might also need to put a more durable roof surface on the deck like a silicon or acrylic coating.

Does anyone have experience with  a white roof?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. You might be better off with some kind of floating deck over the existing roof. I know there are wood deck tiles that snap together on a plastic backing and are pretty DIY friendly. But I don’t know if they can sit on your roof without damaging it. I’m guessing it’s a 20 year EPDM rubber roof?
