I finished tearing apart the deck today! I worked all morning, and most of the afternoon, and my muscles are protesting already. But the deck is gone! All except for one board that is trapped under that palm tree...
To refresh your memory(haha), here's the "before":
And here's the after!
We still need to gather up all the boards and put them in the fire. And we're planning on starting the new deck in the morning! I'm pretty excited, can you tell?
