Hi Angie, see if some of these ideas help you: https://www.hometalk.com/search/posts?filter=Decks%20in%20Build
Thank you Soooo Much 👍🏼😉x
you need to build the decking to meet the area codes of safety. you may need permits to build it.
Thanks for your info but I'm not attaching the decking to my property So in Scotland there are no building regs required. But thanks for your help 👍🏼
There are tons of books out there plus You Tube. You can also get info at lumber store. Also, codes need to be followed as stated by dfm7193.
Thanks the decking is actually to support a hut 👍🏼😂
Not to burst your bubble, but YES, you do have building regulations. Just because you are not aware of them, doesn't mean they don't exist. Ignorance is not always bliss.
Took me all of 2 seconds to Google, and I am in California.
Sounds like you want a free standing deck. Easy to Google.
So welcome Angie! Enjoy building your deck. 🌞
