We knew when we bought the house the deck was going to need some work with the minimum being it needed stained badly. The deck area around our hot tub wasn't supported correctly underneath and some of the wood was in bad shape so it needed to be replaced. Plus we needed to add railing so no body fell off what is almost a 3 foot drop.
|There was a panel that covered this area, but it was in terrible shape|
so we pitched it a while back.
|We added even more support perpendicular to these boards,|
but for some reason don't have a picture of it.
