Our deck was damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and never repaired. It wasn't until this past month that we secured estimates and a work permit then hired builders to get the new deck built. The most exciting part about the new deck for me are the front steps to a front door. We only had one set of inside steps that were accessible through my DH's junky man cave which made for a grouchy DW. Of course there are a few finishing touches to be made but I wanted to share some before and after pictures now.
