Pressure washed and needs hand rail

I went out early and then it still took me 2.5 hours and I got it and that end of the house pressure washed. So now the hand rail gets attached and it is ready to paint with solid stain. This is the ramp side of the deck. Here is the other side of the driveway and you can see the length of the ramp. It is about 14 ft. long from the deck edge to the ground.

This is the front edge with the steps and the whole thing measures about 24ft long. Most of this is recycled wood from my neighbors old decks. Yes two of them were taken down and they were then hauled here and we made this out of it.

We have about $320 in screws and extra wood we needed because of hand rails and supports underneath. We figured it would have cost us new and labor almost $5000 if someone else came in and did the construction for us. So I am glad he was still able to get it made before it was a needed thing. Now to get it stained and ready for Winter. Chris

repurposing/recycling is always a good thing. Great job.
