The next house demo project we decided to tackle is the front deck, which was so badly termite damaged when we bought the house in 2010 that parts of it were unsafe to walk on. We bought just enough Trex (on clearance at Home Depot!) about 3 years ago to replace the deck, but they have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for the laundry room and race season to end to be put to use. Like a baffoon I took no before pictures of the old deck, but here is what it looks like post old deck removal, which I did 90% of alone while Brendan was at work (Call me a constrution woman :)!

|Of course we got distracted a lot yesterday, trimming the hedges which grow crazy fast and always want to molest you!|
