Helpful Gazebo & Deck Building Information

Although store bought deck building plans are great for giving you a general idea as to how your deck will look, we've yet to find a set of deck building plans that didn't suffer from major errors. Designers of generic gazebo and deck building plans have to make many general assumptions about soil type and design loads. If you have less than perfect soil and/or are building a deck or gazebo in an area that gets snow, the lumber, footing, and bolt sizes recommended in pre-packaged deck building plans won't work. Even if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate with great soil, pre-packaged deck building plans are woefully lacking in sufficient detail and accuracy to help you get the job done right.

On the other hand, you may be planning on designing your own gazebo or deck building project. The information on has been specifically tailored for gazebo and deck building. It's information that quite simply can't be found anywhere else. If your deck building project calls for cantilevering joists or beams, designing for snow loads or hot tubs, building multiple levels, or anything in-between, has the help you need. Along the way, we'll point out lots of deck building tips that will not only make your job easier, but will also ensure your deck remains trouble-free for a lifetime.
