Stephanie had been waiting many years for a new backyard deck. I was happy to help. I was not able to finish it in the time I had available, but they graciously let me go, promising to finish laying the last portion of boards down.
Her husband and I took apart the old one, then drove to Lowe’s and bought a trailer-full of pressure treated lumber. I spent the next 5 days putting it together. It has a stepped landing, a border, a rounded corner, and is notched around a tree trunk!
