Deck Demo

Finally! Our deck project has been in the works for some time now, so finally, this weekend Brent and I spent all day Saturday ripping out the remaining top half of the deck. We didnt realize how rotton the deck was, so when the boards started falling apart with one hit of the hammer, it was a bit more fun. I spent the morning drilling out all the screws, yes, every screw came out of the deck, well, the ones we could get. We also found out that below the deck was a concrete slab, and that the deck was built with railroad ties holding it up... very scary to think about. We have half the deck still scattered about our back yard, which will be recycled on Monday, and we'll finish cleaning it up, lay down the gravel, and start the new deck this coming weekend! We're so excited!

(Below) The concrete slab had about 2 inches of dirt on it, from years and years of who knows what..
