This is the year our deck will be built and I bought this book to help solidify our ideas. The photographs are beautiful. While many of the decks pictured are elaborate and much grander than ours will be, they sparked ideas. I took components, like the pergolas and privacy screens, and incorporated them into our own deck design. We changed our minds on how the stairways will be built because we saw others we liked better. The information about composite decking helped change my mind about using it for our deck. The book is now with our builder who has designed many decks in our area and is always looking for new ideas and new materials. He's especially interested in the how-to portion of the book and any possible new ways to construct a deck.
A lot of good information, mainly purchased to help me get some diffrent ideals. Illustrations are good, would recommend to review before starting your deck to help you see other diffrent ideals to incorporate into the design aspect.
Great book with lots of good ideas and photos. I am putting my project together today, as a matter of fact, now that I have picked out what I want done.
Book was exactly as described and arrived quickly. The contents is very useful for anyone planning a new project as well as a renovation.
