Design Inspiration

A day after I finished building the trellis next to the back steps, I decided the design still needed a little flair.  I considered a few different ideas for adding some more character to the top of the trellis, but in the end I found my inspiration just glancing up at the roof.

Roof Bracket

Trellis Bracket

That bracket picture above also shows a couple big projects-in-waiting.  Almost all the brackets have those boards installed inside and above them, which I intend to remove.  The board must have been intended as bird control, but I know there are less obtrusive ways to accomplish this.  After the boards are removed, all the exterior wood will need to be scraped/stripped, treated, repaired and repainted.  The paint is in pretty rough shape!
