The other day I had the realization that Dave has built FIVE decks in the seven years we have owned the house...
When we purchased the house, it came with a ugly, rotten wood deck. The summer after we purchased the house, we replaced the rotten deck with a small stone patio. It was an epic failure, thankfully done with mostly free materials.
As part of the kitchen renovation, we built a new wood deck with pressure treated lumber.
Last year we replaced the small concrete steps to our front door with a new stamped concrete patio.
Then this year we replaced a large section of dead grass with a matching concrete patio in the backyard.
Dave was not in love with the pressure treated wood on the second backyard deck and it had taken a considerable amount of abuse during the renovation. So when he was able to get a good deal on cedar deck boards, he decided that he had to rebuild the deck out of cedar.
I must admit I love the colour and smell of the new cedar deck...
But Dave has been told that this is absolutely the LAST desk he will build for this house.
