Whether you are building a new deck or updating an existing one, this comprehensive book guides you through the steps from the initial plan to the finishing details. Complete with hundreds of illustrations and step-by-step photos, it details every stage of construction, including installation of the footings, posts, framework, decking, stairs and railings. It also suggests ways to customize your deck by adding elements such as lighting and heating, or installing a kitchen or hot tub.
As a source of ideas for your project, a photo gallery shows a wide range of examples, including those with built-in seating, a pergola and a screened gazebo. Plans for ten custom decks include ground-level and second-story walkouts, as well as island, wraparound, inside-corner, platform and multi-level versions.
