Deconstructing the deck
Wow. It's amazing that something that takes weeks to build can take just a day and a half to deconstruct. Our formerly awesome 22' long by 12' wide deck that attached our tiny 850 SF house to our 10' x 12' backyard "studio" (modern-shed.com) has now been separated into a smaller 9' x 11' low platform deck (tucked behind the studio for our future BBQ and summer lounge area) and a neat, tarp-covered stack of redwood to be used in the construction of a new deck that we will build off the back of our about to be expanded house.
Mike and I forgot about all of the huge chunks of concrete that we hid under the deck as we built the framework 3 years ago. More for our contractors to carry away after they jackhammer the rest of the old concrete landing (also hiding under the deck).
