So, I recently took down a deck on the other side of my yard that was attached to a pool. Pool was damaged a year ago from major snowstorm we had in the New England area. It was a indeed a crazy winter in 2014/2015, over 25 days of constant snow…… haaaa.. anyway that is now behind us… awaiting the next one.
Pictures from the snowmargedon we had for 2014/15 season….
The snowload was so much it damaged our above ground pool, we never got to use at all since it was our 1st time in the house….
Anyhow, the cost to replace it was too much (over $10k) s0, we took it down ($500) and needed to also get rid of the deck since it was unstable. Most of the deck boards were taken by someone who needed to build a deck in his new home so I was able to save on removal cost. With what was left, I decided to build a outdoor patio bench. I will talk about the the plan for the pool area in another post.
I wanted to create a sitting bench that look rustic and worn, so i chose to take one of the oldest planks from the deck boards and place it within the vertical board. So all I had to buy for the project was glue for outdoor projects ($10) and a pack of outdoor screws ($10) See the build below and let me know what you think?
Enjoy your day..
