This fall, work began on replacing our deck and expanding our catio.
First, the old deck was removed and a new deck was built. Like the old deck, the new deck is L-shaped, wrapping around the side of the house:
In these pictures you can see the door that leads from the kitchen to the deck, and the screen door that separates the deck from our original catio:
The next step was to enclose the new deck, in order to make it an extension of the catio:
The following two pictures show the doors that lead from the family room on to the deck, at the side of the house:
Now we -- and also humans! -- can go directly out to the new, enclosed deck + catio, either from the kitchen, or from the family room:
The new deck / expanded catio is illuminated!
