12 x 26 deck



Our old deck was falling apart and was to small for our family. I tore it down over spring break and build a new one that is 12 x 26. It has a bump out for a grill and clipped corners. The most challenging part was the corner angles, they were a little harder than I expected and I had to redo the first one a few times. We plan on staining it and adding lights this fall. It has been great to be able to have our entire family and friends on it at the same time!

  • Beautiful! Would love to see a step by step, especially the steps. We are planning on opening up a portion of our deck railing and putting in steps to the yard.

    • Thanks, unfortunately I didn't take too many pics in the process. I got a lot of info from decks.com. They have free plans and free material calculators. If you have any questions please let me know.
