Beautiful decks can give a major face-lift to any tired-looking home and also increase its value. This book offers step-by-step instructions on how to design and build decks, both as DIY projects and when working with contractors. The true value of the book are the 60 photo sequences as well as over 600 other wonderfully detailed illustrations scattered throughout. One only wonders whether all this theory truly applies in practice for those who can't afford a contractor. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
