My old deck was a mess – an unsafe mess. All stop on art and social life once I got the money to repair it. The foundation/base woodwork was good, so we got the wood planks needed for the floor and rail. My dad and mom set off to work ahead of me as I had to work during the day. My mom and I helped my dad as much as we could with our limited skills. My father was a beast and knocked the deck and rail out fast. It looks beautiful! We still have one railing on the back wall to do and the staircase, but since neither are unsafe (just ugly), we are taking a break from the construction until a little later. I have a couple snaps of the happenings from my phone too. Enjoy!
