4.0 out of 5 stars What I liked about the book July 3 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am currently building a deck and this book as been a tremendous help. It shows you the 'How To" to building a deck in proper stages. The text is laid out with the detailed pictures perfectly. The book also describes in detail the material, hardware, and tools required for the job.
What I liked about the book:
- Excellent layout with text and detailed pictures
- Takes you step by step from posts, to frame, to decking, railings, and finishing touches such as stairs and pergolas.
- Excellent description of tools and hardware

For the next addition
- More detail in stair building, especially with anchoring and securing stairs
- More instruction on second level decks

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful book Jan. 8 2013
By toolman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Read it from front to back. I'm going to build a deck this summer and wanted to learn all about it and figure out how to do it on the cheap but still be nice and have unquie features. This book helped me do all those things.

I will note however that I ordered this from the vender "Why Pay More and Fast Shipping" and they gave me the 4th edition instead of the 5th...and it had rips in the covers, so watch out for them.

3.0 out of 5 stars not for building - that's for sure May 11 2013
By Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If your looking for a book that gives a lot of general knowledge about decks because your thinking about hiring someone to build it for you than I would recommned this book, BUT if your looking for a book to help you build a deck than I would not recommend this book. The instructions are basic and very vague as are the plans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Aug. 19 2012
By KAMYAR PASHNEHTALA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a semi-handi man and was contemplating building backyard deck on a fairly good gradient (10-13 feet above grade). I also wanted to know how far I could push the design to maximize the clear span beneath the deck. This book helped me quickly determine the art of the possible and more importantly to know that I was in over my head. In the end... It has helped me to speak and ask educated questions and to get the deck I really want. Worth every cent!
