We've lived in our house for about 5 years, and out of those 5 years our deck was considered unsafe for 4 of those years. Short explanation- the deck was built too wide and long without enough support beams. So after many trips to Home Depot, we finally have a space we LOVE! Best part? Mr.L loves grilling so much I haven't had to think about or cook dinner in about a week.
Love is understatement! Mr.L (and his dad) worked very hard to make this a stable, safe place, and worked some more on making it beautiful to boot!
