Deck design Software packages can be bought for 20 dollars and upto and over 200 dollars, they are specific to help you design your own deck and most come with the ability to make up a shopping list of the materials that you are going to need for your deck design.
If you are planning to build a deck for this summer, 2005, are you in effect planning to build a big pallet to sit on top of the ground or are you going to cement in foundation posts to give you a good base to build from. One of the nicest outcomes of a deck building project is that you can continuously build on it year after year, but this will only really work well if you start with good solid foundations.
To help you choose, you can read a review of the latest deck design software here at Deck Design Software, you can also follow the links on that page to read articles on deck design and decking timber and find a useful deck dictionary of terms.
There are companies who will partially build for you, doing the vital part of foundation and frame building up so that you can place the boards yourself in your own time, this is a cheaper option than paying for a full deck installation but with the guarantee that the foundations are good and strong AND you get the feel good factor of having done some of the work yourself.
Wouldn't it be great to enjoy this summer on your own deck!
