|Old decking..not good.|
So, this year, we decided to take it all up again and go with treated decking planks. Trev had put the old stuff back on in sections with treated landscaping ties as supports underneath. As we think we can re-use these as another deck project, we didn't want to take them all apart, so we cartwheeled them off the deck...very heavy....and they now are sitting on the walkway, making it feel like we live on a dock! Eventually, we'll get those moved (I hope!).

Now for the new deck!
We still have to put up the railing, which will
hopefully get done by Trev while the kids and I head off to work at camp for the next 3 months. But I am loving the way it looks so far! After 60 days of being in place we can put a coat of waterproofing stain on as well which will preserve it even more.
My deck is my favourite place at the Little Shack and I enjoy sitting out there in all seasons.... huddled in a blanket in the winter with a mug of hot chocolate, or relaxing on a summer evening, listening to the birds and enjoying the scenery. It's my 'happy place'!
