I have been working on this project since Nov 6th, mostly between rainstorms.
My decks that surrounding the house were not built well and were rotting. anyways I am just getting to the final finish work and I thought I would share the hell involved in replacing over 4000 linear feet of redwood decking.:think:

some of the rotted beams before we tossed them

new footers



new deck supports


working our way out



original back deck


tear down


build up



Dec 11 we finally got a break in the weather and we finished all the big deck work, headers footers beams and decking.







tomorrow we do the finish work on the deck and put in the hand rails

I'm neck deep in a bathroom remodel so I know your hell.

I don't want to see the bill from the lumber yard for that. I bet it makes my bathroom look cheap.

damn I feel like and old man today. Wait I am an old man...

my back is super stiff, hopefully the 800mg of Ibuprofen kicks in and helps. Lots of work to get done today

just some facing boards need to be attached and the front will be complete
