The old deck's gotta go. We can't walk onto it without getting splinters. It's old, twisted and well loved. In it's place will be a screened in porch with an adjoining deck for the grill and eventual fire pit.
So it was all torn down, about a month ago. Things have progressed slowly but surely.
This is how it looked last week. Will take another photo tomorrow if the heat doesn't melt us all. It's going to be a beauty!
