Ground Level Western Red Cedar Deck

When building a ground level deck is out of the question, sometimes opportunities exist above. Many buildings have the potential of developing roof space. Even very small areas can be made into attractive and practical decks. This deck design incorporates 48"x48" (1219 mm x1219 mm) lift-out Cedar deck panels that can be laid in many interesting patterns. You can also use these deck panels to enhance ground level patios, concreted garden areas or balconies.The ground level deck provides the simplest way of expanding living space outdoors. Attached to the house or freestanding, these decks are particularly effective in providing usable space over damp, rocky or relatively uneven terrain. This deck is attached to the house, providing easy indoor/outdoor access for you and your guests. Shallow pools, tubs and planters can be set into the deck, even hot tubs or gazebos can be accommodated.

Seating

The built-in seats are both attractive and functional – especially when you’re entertaining large groups of friends. Easy to build, they consist of 2″ x 3″ (51 mm x 76 mm) Cedar on a Cedar frame.

Construction

This deck is constructed of 2″ x 4″ (51 mm x 102 mm) Western Red Cedar decking laid over Cedar joists. Deck edges are trimmed with 2″ x 8″ (51 mm x 203 mm) Cedar.
