The most detailed, most current and most complete deck building book on the market. It reflects the latest changes in building codes and it features deck building materials that are popular today. The additional two signatures (32 pages) contain all-new deck plans with complete plan drawings. Updates to the materials section focus on new composite and non-wood deck building alternatives, as well as the current generation of deck hardware that resists corrosion caused by non-CCA pressure treated lumber. Step-by-step projects feature clever ways to customize and accessorize your deck to enhance both utility and enjoyment.


  • Good content, but layout and cross references are muddled

    By SasquatchTheEngineer
    The content of this guide seems to be decent (I'm 1/3 of the way through it), but in many cases the references to related content within the book seem to have been broken as it was converted to iBook format. For example, in the section on setting beams, there's a reference to a picture of "sandwiching" on "page 23", but page 23 doesn't seem to have anything like that. There are also numerous cases where it refers to a picture on the left that is actually above, or similar. iBooks shows it as 1104 pages, but it's listed as 352 on the store.
