Do yourself a favor....Rip the old rotten P.O.S. out and throw it away. Level and form the area, call the concrete truck, smear the mud around flattish like. Letter setup, knock the forms off and call it done. It won't rot out like another new deck will. When you would be replacing the next rotten P.O.S. you will be out riding and having fun instead.

I too am going to be absent from church tonight. Work gets in the way of all kinds of fun! Somebody else can have my share of the sacrement.

Good idea, but too late. Got the first coat of stain on the new deck tonight. Second coat tomorrow before the rain comes. Then all summer long working on the details -- steps, benches, lighting, whatnot.

Despite my bitching and moaning, I find it relaxing work and kinda fun. There's sort of a zen to it.

Anyhoo, we fixed a lot of drainage and other problems that led to the rot. The last deck lasted 23 years. I expect this one will last until we decide that our knees are just too old for a two-storey house.

I have a wide scope of responses, from one line smart ass, to attitudes of self enrichment through "labor involved", "hands on", wtf ever.
Shorter people than I have told me that they often wished they had more height.
I counsel the fact that I most likely bump my head more often than they do in everyday life. the world is gaged by the average.
I say,, clear the back yard area altogether, and pour molten metal into pre-determined forms wherever you desire, and hit the entire neighborhood with a slew of slag.! benches, tables,,drinking fountains,,worm farms,,just imagine it, and it it yours.

Just so's y'all know I haven't been completely slacking... Took the BIL (also the deck builder) on a tour of the local gravel roads.
