Fixing The Back Deck

As I've probably posted before Hal is slowly replacing the decking around the house. Last year he did the east deck suspended over the garage. This year he is tackling the north deck on the back of the house. It is the least used of all of them but the most damaged from the fact it is on the north side and bears the brunt of the the winter storms coming out of the northwest.

I don't know if he is going to do the whole of the deck this year or just half, but so far he's blocked off the upper part and has torn apart the lower portion. Here are a couple of photos.
Here's a closeup showing the extent of the rot. As the project progresses I will take more photos. The weather hasn't been cooperating however so nothing much will be happening again for a few days.
