Tal ripped out our old deck today!
He spent about 7 hours removing the boards in our top and bottom decks:
Tal was hot, sweaty, and exhausted when he finished:
Our deck was 15 years old.
It was warped, splintered, and uneven:
You might remember that part of our deck railing
was damaged when our built-in grill collapsed 5 months ago:
Instead of repairing the railing,
Tal and I decided it was time to invest in a new deck:
For that reason, this summer Tal will be building us a new deck (while I'm on baby duty):
To save time and money,
we will be keeping the existing framing, which is in good shape:
Tal will be putting down 40 new deck boards, as well as rebuilding the railing,
staining the deck, and installing lattice around the upper deck. Stay tuned!
