When he had half of the railing removed, the entire railing support fell down. Talk about needing to be removed! I think Aaron enjoyed demolishing the balcony :) Tearing things down is always fun.
Now we are left with the rafters sticking out. We were hoping to be able to reuse the rafters but most of them are rotted, so we are probably going to start from scratch when building the new balcony. I think this will be a project in the future though since our todo list is already pretty long.
