This was the spring to tackle the deck project. The old deck was showing a lot of wear and the steps where too steep and narrow, so it was time for a re-do. Here is the "before" picture.Bagster bag from Waste Management to get rid of the old deck. We filled the bag, their website was easy to use to schedule a pick up and they hauled it off! Step 2, pour new footings, we didn't change the foot print of the deck much but I wanted bigger posts, I used 6x6's instead of 4x4's and added one additional post for more strength.
And the finished deck!
