Day 8: Deck, stairs and hot tub installation done. Enjoy!

We’re back at Ange and Kevin’s, where we renovated their loft in 2012. This time we’re transforming their Kanata backyard from a blank slate to an oasis with hot tub and deck.

Day 1: Backyard 'before'.

Day 7: After losing Tuesday and Wednesday to Mother Nature, we were back at Kevin and Ange's yesterday. Today we're laying Grey Veranda composite (simulated wood) decking over the 2x10 pressure treated framework. Composite decking means no annual re-staining, just cleaning.
