In 2009, we did a major house renovations. House has been built in 1952.
To restore a the country style, we decided to carry out a large covered deck that will wrap-around the house.
So, enjoy the beautiful view of the Saguenay River and Fjord, we also built a huge raised deck behind the property.
We built an under deck storage area too.
