Our demolition began with pulling off all the old deck. It didn't take long since a lot of it was pretty old and feeble from years of neglect. From there, the framing began. It was a big undertaking for just two of us, but my dad and I moved quickly. We had poured the concrete for our posts several days before so that they'd be ready. We pulled the siding off of the house, put up flashing and then attached our ledger board. We put up our posts and set dropped in our beam.
