This was the view from the hot tub, which was also in the master suite. No one used it, certainly not me, as I consider hot tubs to be giant petri dishes, but I was able to hang out the window to get this shot.
This is a view of the deck outside the kitchen and dining area. It also stretched the length of the house past the game room, which came equipped with both a pool table and a giant TV, perfect for optimum football game watching. Unfortunately, all our teams lost this weekend, but that's a different story.
Here's an external view of the house, which Tim took while we were out in a canoe. The last time I was in a canoe was approximately 1982, and I don't know that Tim has ever been in one. Accordingly I was scared to death that we were going to tip over and dump our camera in the lake, which fortunately did not happen.
And finally, a photo proving that we used the deck properly, probably in exactly the way the architects planned.
