Mini Post: Deck Rebuild –

By Wayne Halm –

It is seriously cutting into my golf time, so I thought I would show you what I’m up to.

Our back deck needed replacing. So I took on the task – by myself.  (Sally contributed the idea of making it bigger.)

Yeah, it was time, and the wide un-railed steps were a disaster waiting to happen.

So the question is, “Can an old guy rebuild a deck by himself?” Follow along and find out.

I put a good bit of thought into it and began the demolition – after that I was committed.

As I took it apart the need to replace became even more apparent. Quinn, my backyard bug-eating bird buddy, stopped by to offer his approval.

Demolition took a bit of doing. Those old rotten boards were surprisingly stubborn.  But I prevailed.

 I was happy about my day’s work. My dog, Sonny, wasn’t quite so sure.

Yea me! The old guy tore it out.  Now, can he put it back?  Follow my posts and find out.

Then — Come play golf with me.
