Yes, I had everything delivered. Still had to go to the store to buy one board because that’s how things work. Plus needed cement.
The old side steps. I was originally just going to build a copy, but dad said why not just build it as big as the slab? I like his thinking :P
Im guessing this rotten crap was made in the 90's. Previous owners of my home thought paint covers rotten wood.
In a few hours we had the old deck “apart” and cleaned up the area.
That’s about 3 days of work.
A day of getting the railings set up and cutting the posts to size.
I wish I didn’t apply thompsons water seal clear. It’s not going to protect the deck from turning grey :\
Having the steps go out to the driveway is perfect for unloading groceries.
Yesterday I built a bench out of 2x4s! I used some free plans online.
Haven’t decided to stain it or use teak oil.
View across the street. Still need to finish demolishing the old deck/steps
