Deck Demo Has Begun!

Last weekend, Doug, Aidan and Sean started the deck demolition so our summer project has begun! First, before photos:




You can see that it is very aged, but what you can't see is that a lot of the support beams are rotting and it is really weak in areas. I'm afraid of falling thru it! Plus the kids get splinters often.

Here's our crew:


Aidan tries to haul a big sheet of lattice to the trailer.


Sean sees that Daddy is wearing a hat and work gloves, so he and Aidan ask for theirs.


It took them two days and two evenings, but Doug got that sucker torn down and the boys helped pile the wood onto a trailer to go to the dump. Sean adores the dirt pit where the deck was. We have had to do baths every night this week!
