Building a deck can be a challenge without the right knowledge and tools. If you take the time and study in instructional books and videos rather than the truth, it can be very easy. I do not want to mislead you though. It will take time and will take the job, but in the end will greatly increase your backyard and expand the living space of your home. Is your backyard large enough? That’s the key point there. If you do not have a room than you certainly can not build a deck. It’s that simple A small backyard can still accommodate the deck, you just have to use your imagination. Not all decks must be large or large. A simple transition point from the back door to the terrace can add a lot of character to the backyard.
Break out of what is considered ‘normal’ as far as deck construction goes and look into a more decorative way. To one side of the backyard you install a roofless gazebo; a simple platform type deck with upholstery built on the fence and perhaps a fire pit in the middle. This will make a big meeting. The bigger backyard is where you can really experiment with the design. I can not even begin to explain what all might be due to unlimited potential. Once again your ability to build the deck, and the type of deck, depends heavily on the situation in your backyard.

Backyard Deck Design Ideas
Combine ideas and design for a truly unique setting. Start with backyard construction and deck building books. There are hundreds and if any, they will give you ideas for design and layout. Part of this project can be a fun part of building to make you think and spend your time. The Internet also has many ideas and articles. After that came the professional designer. They will have a better understanding of how things can work together so that they will give many more solid design ideas. I myself like to do something myself so I’ll buy some books and design myself. Tools for making simple decks. Screws, nails, hammers, saws, tape measure, level, drill, straight edge, etc.
All the basic tools are the mainstay of what you need. The type of nails and screws will depend on the type of material you choose to use for your deck. Wood requires screws and wooden nails. The wrong nail / screw can cause an unstable deck over time. The materials used to build the deck may be wood, metal, or composite type that is treated in a certain place. Wood has the most natural and comfortable feeling yet metal and composite will be the most durable in the long run. If you choose wood, and I may just because I am a bit old in taste, make sure to keep it treated and sealed water, especially during bad weather.
