Huge old deck to sand and stain
To properly do it, I'd imagine need to sand everything, which requires hammering all the nails down a notch. Clean, and stain twice.
Problem is it's huge. The lot is on a slope downward to the back, so basement at the back of the house is actually ground floor. Desk is at main-floor level which is 1 floor up. The main deck area alone is probably ~500 sqft. The stairs going down with 14 steps, and 2 landings(?) area. Then all the railing, and also has an open deck roof that covers about half the area, the underside of the deck and posts.
AND.... the deck continues and wraps around one side of the house/garage all the way to the front (which then becomes ground level). This side is probably another ~300 sqft and more railings.
There's no way I'd be able to finish all these or do everything properly in 1 season. Any suggestion how I can tackle this in smaller chunks?
Not even gona mention the fences at this point lol....
EDIT: adding pics

- Wrap on 1 side of house all the way to front, with a couple steps and turns
