front deck: day 2

Okay! Now we’re talkin’.

So, the workers showed up today a little after 9:00 AM and started dismantling the ol’ front deck. It’s safe to say that we are not going to miss it. 🙂

(…thus the reasons for the deck’s replacement)

The boys didn’t mind though. For them it was like their own little dinner and a movie. Only it was breakfast… and construction… with a pretty predictable plot.

And this next images is pretty much how things looked at the end of the day…

Soon after this picture was taken they dug the holes for the new deck footings and brought over the cement truck to distract the boys for another good chunk of time.

Needless to say, the day provided oodles of entertainment for the boys and their friends. The rain had started to kick in around this point so there wasn’t a whole lot more they could do on the actual deck. And given the 50+ mm of rain we’re supposed to be getting over the next 24 hours, that might be all that gets done until Thursday.

Doesn’t matter. It’s so nice to finally see some actual progress on our home.

More to come. We’ll keep ya posted. 🙂

Snapped another picture on the way home today. Give a good view of the progress so far. 🙂

  1. I bet that is providing endless entertainment for the boys. My guys would be soooo jealous.

    Can’t wait to see what the finished product will look like.

    • Yeah, they’re loving it. The two workers are really friendly and always take time to talk to the boys too. It’s really nice. It’s mostly done already, structurally anyway. Just the railings and stairs to do which I guess may take more time since it’s more intricate work with more pieces.

      Ah, well. It’ll all be done soon enough. 🙂
