Deck - please give advice

I understand your thinking. You’ll need to research your state and council regulations regarding what plans you need to provide and if you need footing inspections etc.

Temporarily covering over window

Thick styrofoam covered in plastic wrap. Interference fit so it's not permanent.

Can I do the garage painting by myslef?
