Post a picture with the gone area highlighted so we can suggest what to do!

I am empathizing with you completely! You must feel so cornered at the moment! I hope you can find a way to either conceal the area, or embrace it. Also, a picture of the area would really help us bees suggest something for you!

This may be totally off base, but if it’s just boards that need replacing, could you get a bunch of handy friends together and make a day (or two) of it? Pack a few big picnic lunches, a few cases of beer and a trip to Home Depot could go a long way! If it’s something structural that’s an entirely different issue (unless you have a friend who’s a structural engineer!), but if it’s mostly a matter of time and man power, there maybe a way.

@Valhalla Then I hope the pictures brought back aren’t too discouraging. I’m sure you will find a way to make it work!

Hmmm….not sure if this would work, but what about blocking the view with topiaries?  A line of rented topiaries…possibly with some pretty gauze-like ribbon linking them, may be a good way to delimit the reception area and block off the view.  It would totally depend on what it looked like to begin with but that was what I first thought of.  You could make your own (real or fake) or rent them.  Since you are on a beach, rented mini-palm trees may work also, perhaps?

I hope it’s better than what you’re expecting. Maybe the owner is in shock right now and things look worse through her eyes than it really is. I think your mom’s idea of some latice work and some flowers or something is a great one! I’m sure once you get photos you’ll be able to wrap your head around it (and come here for more ideas!). Good luck hon! I’m optimistic this is something you can work around and look back on as a little hiccup, not a major calamity 🙂
