Not sure what the previous owners had in mind, but these shape corners make it difficult to place anything. On top of that, the deck is sinking so it's got a nice slant and making some parts to come apart
We just moved into this house & had to cancel our house warming because of the condition of the decks! Boards and nails caught my socks & rip holes in them. I need my deck!! Even my dog "Luggnut" hates walking on it HELP US PLEASE!!
