Wood Deck Plans

A deck adds valuable living space to a house and is high on the list of additions and upgrades for many homeowners. Decks can be very costly and reputable contractors can be hard to find.

Choose a modest, low platform that gives kids a great place to play and hang out or build a fabulous, multi-level deck with rails and built in seating for the perfect summer entertaining venue.

Many deck plans come with material lists, how-to videos, tips and full instructions for customizing the design to fit your family's needs. Build a deck with a pergola, stairs, railings or seating to give your yard a decorator look. Specialty plans for curved and detached decks make a big impact when you are looking for something truly memorable.
