Here are some photos on the progression of our deck.As of right now,all that is left is the stairs,the trellis skirting,and the pergola. It's slow progress,but the deck will be solid,probably more solid than the house! LOL!
|You remember this sad old deck,don't you? The lattice skirting had already begun to be taken down. Please note the attractive cinder blocks that are working as our bottom step.Sasha doesn't look overly impressed.|
|Samson decided to take one last stroll on the old deck. Don't you LOVE the green moss/algae growing on the trellis? Not sure what look we were going for with this.....Lazy Homeowner apparently :)|
|The deck is pulled away from the house.It wasn't attached,but the front supports were cemented into the ground,so pulling with the truck didn't work so well. Brother B had to take the old chain saw to the legs and then pull it from the house.|
|The new board replaced the rotted one,which,we discovered,had been a hang out of some termites.Happily,they either died off or decided to go to some other home.|
|Dude-where's my deck???|
|Rick showing Zach where to hammer in the hangers.|
|Here is what the floor looks like. Each board has been routed smooth. No sharp ends!|
