The back deck is gone!

This past winter, in the middle of December when there wasn't even any snow on the ground, during a large monsoon-like rainstorm, a large 75+ foot pine uprooted and fell on our deck. 

These pictures don't even make it look as bad, but upon further investigation you can see that the main support member is thoroughly compromised. Yes, busted in two! That was a heavy tree.
So, finally in August we decide to tear up the deck and begin the process of rebuilding. Check back here for updates. Below, you see Sandor removing the first deckboard. It sure comes apart easily! It is the original deck from the 1960's....

Wow! Look at all of this space!
