DIY Deck Built in About 5 Days

The picture above is the BEFORE shot of back of our house, and as you can see, there's not much pretty there.  A huge concrete slab step and a cracked & ugly concrete pad. 

This is my father & my hubby (in red) building the deck.  My father is a building inspector for a county in Ohio, so he knows his stuff when it comes to construction & building houses, and doing renos & repairs. 

The above picture is the AFTER shot of my hubby standing on our large new wooden deck, complete with a canvas awning covering, and a glass outdoor table with four chairs.  We found those red outdoor chairs at Wal-mart for around $10 apiece!

So our yard went from a mostly unusable space covered by concrete, to a beautiful 3-season usable area!  And that's great because our house is small, so it's ALWAYS a good idea to have living space in the outdoors if possible!

So what do you think of the before & after changes?  Is there anything you would've done differently?
