Remember how I told you all our steps to getting this deck livable and usable again? I'm back to say it was SO totally worth it. Now that the kids are home all day for the summer it is getting used for hours every day. Rewards like that are why we work our tails off and really have no other hobbies at the moment. We live for the rewards of a house not just restored to looking decent but really giving to our family what it needs each day.
