Week 3...You first have to tear down...

...before you can build up.

I thought I would be spending this weekend working on the front yard next to the driveway.  Steve and I did get the big ugly bush chopped down and dug out, but that's as far as we got with that.  Why?  Because we signed the contract with our cement guy - and he's planning on starting this coming Wednesday.  While Steve is out of town.  That gave us two days to get rid of the deck.  Turns out, it might have been nice to have three.
Danny and I took the railing off by ourselves on Friday.  It wasn't too hard, but that's as far as we got on Friday.
On Saturday, Steve pried the decking off while Danny and I pounded nails out of boards.
Steve then proceeded to take off the supports.
Once the supporting beams were gone, the posts were easy to push over. Especially since none of them were attached to anything!

Danny and I now have 2 days to finish cleaning up the boards and moving all the crap boards and stuff out of the way.  The good news is that we'll have a birds eye view of any work being done in the backyard once the cement crew is here.
The only nails that were pounded in this weekend were the four that are holding the safety board in place. 

This coming week: It's all about the prep work.
