What a mess! My poor, old 30+ year old deck is finally being rebuilt and instead of flowers, wood and tools are littering the rear garden.
All of the joists and support beams are being removed and replaced. About 75% of the flooring will be turned over and reused ~ thank goodness for the durability of redwood. It will all be sanded down, stained and sealed.
When I see how damaged all of the old supports were I am surprised I haven't walked out and fallen through!
Lattice panels will be built for under the deck, and the flower border will be completely redesigned and replanted with an emphasis on easy care and low water usage.
Hopefully in another week all of the construction will be done, the mess cleaned up and the deck will be ready for enjoying this summer.
Thank you for visiting and Happy Mother's Day!
