New Deck!

To sum up a long story (2+ years in the making), we just replaced the (damaged) floorboards on our deck after sending letter after letter to the supplier to honor a warranty (again, long story).  Anyway, we are glad that is all in the past and so VERY grateful to Ryan's uncle who replaced everything while we were at the beach no less!  He did an amazing job and we are so very thankful for his skilled help!

The floorboards and facade of the deck that we inherited were warped and were badly disintegrating.  We were beginning to feel it was a safety issue and not just a cosmetic one.

Friends generously helped Ryan demo the old floor.  (It always looks worse before it looks better!)

Through the window screen.  Some joists needed replaced as well. 

And then we came from the beach to this!

Mud from our amazing workers!  

We are so very thankful for our friends and family for helping is with this huge project!!  We have fallen in love with our deck all over again!


  1. Oh Tricia...I love it! I will be over for coffee soon! : )

  2. I always feel like I'm on vacation when sitting on your deck! It looks fantastic!!!

  3. oh my gosh that is GORGEOUS! I'm having some major patio envy right now ;-)

  4. Congrats on the new deck, Tricia! It's been quite a journey getting to it but all that time seems worth it looking at how beautiful it looks. Here's to hoping it lasts for a long time so you don't have to go through all that trouble again.

  5. It looks amazing! Loving the dark stain on the wood. It goes well with the white railings and furniture. Have fun on your new deck!
