Repurposing the Deck

by Carol Scott on June 14, 2014

Remember the neighbor two doors down who tore out some old hardwood floors in the Chimney House dining room to repair a damaged floor at his house? Well, he’s at it again–only this time, it’s an entire deck!

We stopped by this morning and found carpenters Brian (left) and Jimmy (right) prepping the deck to remove it and reinstall it at the other house. Honestly, it had never even crossed my mind that this was even possible. Half an hour later the side rails were all removed and the guys were getting ready to separate the base of the deck from the joists, then haul that base in one big piece and transport it down the street. Yes, for real. This whole building our dream house thing becomes a crazier adventure every day!
