First of all, get your head around the deckbuilding process and if you get stuck, remember DeckOne decking is always here to lend a helping hand. Deckbuilding is not easy but doable if you put you apply yourself. Sure it might be hard at the beginning, you are thinking about how to build a deck, but you do not know what to do exactly there or how should you start, but do not worry as most people are having the same problem at first as it is a job in an area which is visible to everyone.
First step is to assign a place in your house and yard to find out the place for the deck, you also should know if you want the deck to be attached to a building or standing alone because each has its own plan to set, also you need to make sure that you already know what is the use of the deck will be.
If the use is to enlarge the dining place, so it is better to place the decking outside the dining room or the kitchen, but if you will use to as an entertainment decking it is better to install it to the living room.
You want to consider the weather when you are going to use the deck, as what time are you going to use it during the year, if you place your deck to the north it would be one great deck during the summers, but it will not be that great during the winter days.
If you place your deck to the north it is going to be hotter, but it is kind of a better choice as it is better to shade the deck than installing heating facilities, now your decision is based on the decking ideas you have and the use of the deck itself.
As an idea is to install a hot tub to the decking, but if you are planning to build it yourself it might be hard at the beginning, so it is better if you just go for the normal basic stuff just until you gain more skills then you can do whatever you want with it, but if you plan to get someone professional to install it, so of course it is no issue to install a hot tub there.
When it is about the design of your deck you want it to be a beautiful one that glows in your house, so just a small common tip about the size, better to have it the same size of your house most large room.
Now you can start working on your deck and build the one you have already designed, it will require you some skills to begin, so you can get yourself a manual to help you with that as you are doing it yourself that would be a great decision, it is a good tool that you must have at the beginning of such a huge job and it will be with you all the time whenever you need it to help you with any troubles you face, we really wish you good luck building your desired deck.
