Eric, wonderful work! Nice + natural picture of yourself as well.
Love the dark walls + couch + small coloured hooks in the living room + yard & simple fence + nun-art (very funny and full of innuendos) + the wonderful pictures of friends & family. A great place!
Thank you for the tour.

I am wondering if you could not consider planting bamboo around your deck... i realize you cannot plant them along the fence but planting them at the foot of your deck would still leave you with a private but natural, rustling screen. Bamboo grows fast anywhere south of Vancouver (i am in the Yukon, too bad for me!!), so it may work for you?
Also, kite-awnings or shade sails can be modern, beautiful and practical... not sure if you could set one up on top of your fence or nearer your deck... they are not fences and may fit your purpose. Here's a few here:

Woah!!! I understand how you feel.
So many people live by a "norm", not even certain where it comes from at times.
There IS societal expectation that you educate yourself, get a job, find a mate, get a place, have children, ....all in that perfect cookie-cutter order! It's insane!!!!
I have a small cedar house now, FOR NOW, and am not sure if it's permanent. Sure it is cute, adorable, cabin-like, zany, charming etc, but so were my 12ft-ceiling-ed apartments with French doors, oak floors & industrial views, as were tiny charming houses i rented... The were equally homes to me, made funky by how i lived in them, what i hung on the walls, who visited me.
I feel absolutely no happier owning except that most of my family now sighs a sign of relief that i may actually be NORMAL. Which in a way depresses the heck out of me... and, unbeknownst to all, i check out rentals in Prague and Portugal more often than they will ever know... the heck with the house.
Life is what you make it and forget the nay-sayers! I'm sure your place is great.

Lisa, you can do it. I had not assembled cabinets before and even though i did get help with the hanging part, (cabinets are actually heavy!) i did a lot more of the finishing than i thought i would and it is BEAUTIFUL. you will really love your kitchen. Depending on the size, give yourself one to two weeks.

Faith, this is awesome.
I put together my ikea kitchen last winter with the help of a carpenter whom i had budgeted in for 2 days maximum. The overwhelming feeling of despair i got from looking at ALL the boxes in the living room, was real. Urghhhhhhhh!! I assembled everything and got help with the actual hanging. I did not glue any of the cabinets.
And then, at last, when the finished product came together, i was more amazed than i was overwhelmed the previous week. I spent the most time putting on handles (and messing up) and installing the finishing touches of trim than i ever thought possible but it is beautiful and functional. Don;t give up, it will be AMAZING!
