A must-have before building a deck I almost made the mistake of letting the contractors design my deck. They came up with a big boring rectangle. Thank goodness I bought this book first! It is packed with many wonderful ideas, including photos and tips to making a deck interesting and functional. It covers layout, railing design, and yard and use considerations. It is a very small investment for a big project, I suggest that anyone building a deck take a look at this book before proceeding.

Vastly improved my boring low-end project If it hadn’t been for this little gem of a book, I’d have ended up with exactly what I thought a deck was: a 10×30′ rectangle on stilts outside my back door.
