I love the decks on the back of the house so much better than opening the door and stepping onto dirt because no grass will grow. So with the help of my son in law (more like he did it and I helped) we pulled out the old deck and replaced it. Once the pressure treatment on the wood is dry, we’ll add a few coats of waterproofing. Next up will be to pressure wash all the pavers, stain the older grill deck and possibly paint it. Heck maybe even paint the outside furniture. Then we’ll set up our Blackstone cooking and fire pit area with seating.
