Low Straight Wood Deck Design
Category: Wood Deck Design & Wooden Structures
Garden Design Project: DKGWCL002
The wood deck design for this project was very straight forward as its primary purpose was to serve as access points to and from the kitchen and dinning room.
When building a deck adjacent to two external walls, lateral strength is easily acheived making the use of 4x2 timber beams acceptable.
These were supported by 4x4 posts concreted into the ground.
The entire deck formed one step which we finnished off by using one long board in the opersite direction making more astheticly pleasing.
10mm gravel was placed around the bottom of the lower step to prevent weeds growing against the deck.
Including a final coat of wood stain the project took only 4 days to complete.
The deck design software used was CAD 2000.
