Creating a custom deck with a DIY deck frame is an excellent method to add a one-of-a-kind piece of outdoor living space to your home. While constructing a deck frame isn't as simple as nailing several boards together, it is a doable DIY project - provided you have the appropriate knowledge and assistance. That's where The Deck Store comes in to help you with your joist plan and spacing strategy.
Building a deck can add value to your home and increase your living space without the expense of adding an additional room to your house.
When you start the construction for your new deck, it's important to start with a strong foundation, just like building a house. If you are planning on doing this yourself, this article will be a great point to start. We will explain what are deck footings, foundation, and how to do it right. So your deck will be strong and sturdy for years to come.
