Knowledge is Power!

Once you’ve decided you would like to have a timber deck attached to  your house, usually, the next step is to search for deck plans. So here  is a bird’s eye view guide to finding yourself some fantastic free deck  plans:

Tip # 1 for finding free deck plans: Where?

You  can view fantastic deck plans either in print magazines and brochures  or, you could search the internet. Print magazines and brochures offer  high quality designs but usually are lacking in details. Also, the  number of deck designs being printed are rather limited (usually no more  than a dozen or so). Further, implementing these fancy designs will  usually cost you a pretty penny.

Brochures are usually published by Timber Decks dealers or dealers of decking material. For this reason, deck designs found in  brochures will usually promote some fancy material that the dealer is  trying to promote. Obviously, this material will either be available  only with that dealer or it may be offered at special seasonal  discounted price.

Select a design  from the magazine or brochure only if you really like it, there is  adequate information provided, and it suits your budget.

Tip # 2 for finding free deck plans: The internet

The  internet is full of free deck plans. There are thousands available at  the proverbial click of the mouse. Again, the same rules apply. Look for  deck plans that have already been implemented and include photos – not  artist sketches or worse, no sketches at all.

Ask  yourself a few questions and see if the deck design provides the  answers to them e.g. how much area will the deck plan require? What  would be the cost in hardwood? What will be the cost in softwood? What  will be the cost if the deck plan is implemented using synthetic  material?

If the deck plan includes a  detailed engineering sketch, it would be a big bonus as having an  engineering sketch makes implementation easier.

Again,  there is no such thing as a free meal. So remember that websites that  provide free deck plans do so on behalf of some timber dealer or  hardware store. While that in itself is not a bad thing, make your own  choice as to the type of material you want to work with.

Tip # 3 for finding free deck plans: Architect Design Books on Timber Decks

You will find these books at most book stores (including online) and also at timber decking dealers.

Architect  design books are my favorite choice – especially those that have been  put together by Australian architects. Some of you will point out that  these books are not free. True, but considering the wealth of  information available within and the sheer number of deck designs, I  would like to think that these designs are as good as free.

Each  design will usually include an engineering plan along with a list of  materials you will need. These deck designs are also (usually) DIY  graded so you know whether you can implement the Canberra decking design yourself or will have to hire the services of pergola Canberra deck contractors.

Another  reason I prefer architect design books put together by Australian  architects is because there will be plenty of region specific design  that also include material that would be locally available.

Whatever your choice, plan to spend time carefully viewing each decking plans before you finally select one that is appropriate to your needs.
