Hi Bob, Moving the lumber by hand is the hard part... Its about 100 yds to the cottage but it is also 50' up in elevation from high tide.
Moving the old deck parts to the burn pile and moving the new lumber up from the dock & boat takes most of the reconstuction time.
We have the 3/4" decking ready for instaltion in the spring..... Brazilian Cherry ( Jatoba )....
I can't bring myself to let it sit with a few feet of snow on it this winter. The old deck had Douglas Fir decking and it lasted 45 years.
I hope the new deck will last that long.
