"Decks: Planning, Designing, Building" is a new book that replaces Creative Homeowner's strong-selling title "Decks: Plan, Design, Build." Hundreds of step-by-step color photographs illustrate the process of building a deck. The writing is clear and concise, yet friendly. Readers will feel as though they are being lead through the deck-building process by a friend who happens to be a professional builder. They will learn not only how to design the perfect deck, but all about the building process as well. Cory gives the reader advice on generating ideas, selecting materials, and using tools. Color photos illustrate examples of decks that work in various situations. How-to sequences take the reader step-by-step through laying out, building, and finishing. The book provides three different deck projects complete with plans and materials lists. With this complete book, even the novice builder will be equipped to build one of the three plans provided, or design and build his own original deck.
