Back Deck

  • January 13, 2016


Wanted a nice place to enjoy the outdoors at my camp. I built a 15' x 30' deck with a 15' x 8' cover. This was the first time I have built an elevated deck. Got the plans from Decks.com online. Where I live the ground is flat, so building something on land with a steep slope was a challenge. When I first started I was a little leary about taking on a project of this size, but it came together nicely as it went along. Whenever someone sees and walks on it the first time they comment on how solid it feels. No bounce at all when you walk on it. Buildind the front porch will be much easier using what I have learned in building this deck and cover. I bought a set of Ryobi 18v one system tools for this project. I was greatly surprised at the power and how long the batteries lasted on the tools. I now have Ryobi 18v tools at my camp and home. Its the only power tool I buy now.
