The guys wrapped the front of the deck with long, rough cedar boards
Piece by piece the deck is growing.
The beginning of the Addition. We are tripling the length of the deck.
The Cedar smells so good!
Board by Board!
Glimpse of the new deck
The new cedar boards are going on. So. Beautiful.
Day 2 was Measuring Cutting Installing the Cedar Planks
Old and New deck
The 3 men worked very hard in the Iowa Heatwave.
The Electricity went out for an hour and the crew took a 15 minute break.
Day 2 Progress
Day 2 New Half
Almost completed the top.
The deck is REALLY long
The Acorns are dropping early this year.
Stairs will be replaced Friday with Cedar and will be wider.
We installed this sliding door several years ago during a remodel. Our plan was to one day expand the deck!
The Old Stairs are GONE!
Starting work on the old stairs
The old deck was not cedar.
We didn’t change the configuration of the deck, so the stairs will be in the same place. They will just “re-trace” the steps.
The New Decking is now in place. The cedar is so beautiful. I wish it would stay this way……
The steps are stronger and wider.
The new steps are 6 inches wider. Railings will be black megal posts with cable running through it.
The posts supporting the deck will be black metal beams.
The old steps reduced to a pile of rubble.
