About this Deck

This is a simple 12 foot X 16 foot deck design slightly elevated and includes a stair case. Of course you can modify the height to suit your needs.

It can be built as a stand-alone structure or set against a house or other building.

Our blueprints are detailed, almost to a fault. But then building a deck should be taken seriously and done right.

If this deck isn’t quite right for you, check out our other deck plans here and for inspiration, check out 68 deck ideas here.

If you wish to use this deck design, we recommend downloading the PDF version.
