When it was time to build a deck I needed a few books since I had never built anything like this before. I am fairly handy but pretty much just learn as projects arise. The plan was to build a 800 sq. ft. deck off the back of my house. I bought 3 books, this one, a Home Depot book and Building a Deck (Build Like a Pro). This book and the one from Home Depot were USELESS! They had some good pictures but the instruction was very scattered and one dimentional, not useful for projects other than what they were specifically showing.

I HIGHLY recommend the Build it Like a Pro book. I thankfully read this one first and it very thouroughly taught me how to build a deck from a real construction guy. It taught methods and variations that allowed me to build the deck of my dream, pretty much all from the one book. Check it out at http://www.amazon.com/Building-Deck-Build-Like-Pro/dp/1561584797/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1230251818&sr=8-1 and don't waste your time on this book.

It's one of the two books hubby is using to help him build our deck. It has solidified his plans and given him concrete principles to work with. I'm glad there is someone out there writing this stuff so that wives can get their husbands moving on these honeydo's....:)
