|Work in progress.
There were a couple of (dirty)Siberian Elms which a service took out, and the deck was patched and stained. I also built some real steps to replace that 2x4 "thing" that was there.
Fyi: it's a bad idea to change from brown to red midway through the staining process(ughhh), but the front porch needed the red.
Hey, not everyone has a purple porch ;)
I also switched from Olympic to Cabots Austrailian oil stain because I didn't like the chalky/silicone feel. Should have tested first.)
