Deck Demolition

This summer we have decided to reclaim 3/4 of our yard by obliterating the swimming pool. Why bother keeping up a pool here when Jenn’s mother has a far nicer in-ground pool only 2 minutes away. I’ve already drained the pool and started dismantling the frame, but one extremely large thing stands in my way: the deck.

I started out by pulling nails and removing each board one at a time. While nice and tidy (and devoid of nail hazards) it was going to take me forever to dismantle the deck that way. Today I decided to take a different approach. His name is Milwaukee but you can call him Mr. Sawzall.
The deck is coming apart considerably faster now.

Hopefully I’ll have it down by the end of next weekend. I’m going to need to get more saw blades…
