Step 1: Materials
8 - 2x4x12 treated studs
30 - 5/4 x 6 x 12 treated lumber
10 - concrete deck piers minimum
2x4 stud steel reinforcements
Galvanized 3 1/2'' nails.
Extra cinder blocks and bricks to level the footing.
Step 2: Building Your Deck
The ground that we picked for our floating deck was uneven so I had to play a little with cinder blocks and bricks to level the frame. Once I was finished with levering the frame I could start nailing the planks to the frame.
We left some spacing between planks to allow for expansion during hot and humid days and for rain water to filter through.
