What a Deck!

When Herb bought the house, he knew that the deck was going to have to be rebuilt. We just didn't realize we were going to have to work on this this season.


The deck was a multiple weekend project. The first weekend, it began with the demo.

Herb demoed the deck all on his own. (I was certainly impressed)

The second weekend, Herb bought the lumber and had it delivered to his house. But, of course nothing can be easy and it was left in front of the house in the driveway and the deck was being built in back of the house. In order to make things move faster during the weekend of building and to avoid lumber poaching, it had to be moved piece by piece to the back yard.

Herb, Marty, Bones and Panda enjoy a cold one after their day of hauling lumber.

The third weekend, the rebuild began by Herb's friend Billy and his team. 
Herb, Andrea and Ben admire the work.

Our new enormous hammock purchased from One Kings Lane.
Table and benches from my apt in Brooklyn and fab new umbrella. 

Lastly, we measured and bought the stainless cable rail. And last weekend, it was finally installed.

Next season, we will stain the deck. But for now, its finally time to ENJOY!
