Nice clean up.....troubling and a lot of work☹️. But the clothesline is now close! 👍

Hope the treatment does the trick.
Lol, the clothesline was there before, but now instead of the rotted deck on the farther side there's a nice drop off... Makes you pay attention a bit more when hanging laundry for sure. I really don't like that it tilts when in use, but it might be because I'm loading it unevenly.

I think we should probably put up a railing, but we still haven't confirmed if the remaining deck is ok to stay or needs ripped out too. We can access underneath now so we can check to see how much more is rotted/chewed up. The decking looks ok to me, but the supports and joists might not be ok. I know the supports for the bench along the edge are mostly rotted away, literally being held up by where they attach to some of the joists.

I think the current plan is to play with the grade a little more, and then put down weed blocker and small gravel or pavers where the deck was previously. Then we could have a decent sitting area out front. This is the east side of the house, so it will get morning sun and afternoon shade. We have a shade sail we need to dig out of storage and set up. Hubby left the tree stump with the hammock hook instead of removing the stump; we need to find where his hammock got stashed and bring that out.

My sister has a 1500 square foot covered deck at her house. She loves to sit outside on her deck. So do I and everybody else that goes there. Haha, the double wide I'm buying is only 1400 square feet!

That is a huge deck! Life goals lol

I want a really nice back patio deck zone, concrete with a fire pit and pizza oven. It'll probably be a decade or so before that happens. We'd have to figure out the elevation change and how to cover up the septic tank zone without making it too inaccessible, while also preventing any smells out.
