Deck the Deck?

No, it’s not Christmas in July; just a very HOT project we decided to start during the hottest part of the year.

Our deck has really taken a downward turn since we purchased the house 2 years ago.  It was so beautiful when we purchased it but didn’t recognize all of the telltale signs of decay under the paint.

Soooo this past weekend we decided to do something about our rotten handrails, warped deck boards, and pealing paint.

This will be an ongoing post as I am not sure when we will actually finish the project. Here are a few photos of the deck BEFORE and during the demo:

Our Deck has an odd layout:  a small 10 foot landing coming off the dining room; then a larger 20 ft area; then narrow again with an elevated area around a sunken hot-tub.  We plan to keep most of the footprint the same but will lower the area around the tub.  We are hoping this will allow for easier entrance into and out of the hot tub (we aren’t getting any younger).

Stay posted for the ongoing transformation.
