Back in July (!), we tore out our deck. It has been a looong time with no deck. We still have a ways to go before the yard project is done — paver patio, outdoor fireplace, re-side the chimney, fence — but at least the deck is done!
We moved the hot tub right next to the house (before it was in the middle of the deck) and now we have sooo much more space. It’s like a dance floor!
