Spring Cleaning

We now have a deck.
It has been in place for a few years now and it is time to do some maintenance.

The primary focus is on the wood elements. Cleaned and brightened it was time to consider the plastic (trex) decking. So Sunday I got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed. And then hosed it all off. I have to admit it was not hard scrubbing, but I was worn out at the end. Picture is about one quarter clean.

And now my back is teetering on the edge. And we still need to put the finish coat on the wood elements.

I have never read so many limitations on when the work can be done. Over 45 degrees, but not when the wood is hot. 48 hours after being wet and 24 hours before rain is expected. Really?!? In Seattle!

Maybe a little bit tonight and I am going to try to get out of work early tomorrow. Chance of rain on Wednesday.

Stay tuned.
