I'm looking for some plans for DYI deck at my front door. Small in size...i.e. 8x16ish.
Hi John, here's a basic plan for a small deck: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/how-to/how-to-build-simple-deck
Your dimensions are smart, you can use standard 8 foot boards without having to make many cuts.

As far as plans go, there are some things you have to decide on. Concrete, wood, composite, aluminum, etc? Where to put steps? How will you anchor it to your house? Do you need railings? These might give you some ideas to get you started.
