What to do with the deck?

Ahhh the backyard deck. Who can live without one from May-September in New England? I'll admit, I was the first to idolize the backyard deck when we were looking for a house. Lounging in the sun, grilling, decorating with lanterns and flower baskets. 

What I never realized is how quickly these majestic wooden structures can go downhill. So while I was managing an infant last summer, my darling deck was baking in the sun. Hard. Like Magda from There's Something About Mary baking in the sun. 

The deck in all of its sun-weathered glory
Who Wore It Best?

But it wasn't just the sun. It was also the water. Somehow this poor plank caught the brunt of the water damage. Maybe it wasn't treated properly because all of the boards around it were much better off than this one. Anyway, this board really needed to go, but the rest of the deck wasn't looking too pretty either.

Since we're planning to sell our house in the near future, we decided the deck must be dealt with. But how? Knock it down and start new? Keep the structure but replace the deck planks and railings (since this horizontal design is a code no-no)? Replace just a few deck planks, update the railings and cover with Deck Restore from Rustoleum? Well.... currently the last option is our plan.


  1. With the True Count the player has a consistent measure of what 카지노사이트 number of} further player beneficial cards are contained within the cards remaining to be dealt. The player can use this data to vary their guess and half in} strategy. Deviations from Basic Strategy are far less necessary than inserting huge bets when the True Count is high and low bets when the True count is low or adverse. The majority of conditions where it is right of the player to double are starting palms that may be made very strong by the addition of a ten worth card or an Ace. Therefore, doubling becomes more beneficial when there are more ten worth cards and Aces left in the deck.
