Bi-Level Deck and Patio

Step 6: Construct the main frame

Picture of Construct the main frame
I used three 6" x 6" posts for the major deck and 4" x 4" posts for the minor deck.  I was told that 4" x 4" posts would work fine for the major deck, but proportionally, the 6" x 6" posts looked better.  The gap you see in this picture is where the short stringers of stairs will go in order to access the major deck.
