Our next deck design was inspired by the flat deck design pictured above, which can be found here.
Our aim with our series of free deck plans is to offer a diverse selection of deck blueprints.
This particular design is similar to a patio, except it’s all deck. Our blueprint (see below) includes footings and is very solid.
Because this deck is flat on the ground, you can place it in many areas including:
- Adjacent (attached) to your home,
- In a garden,
- At the edge of a bluff,
- In the middle of a large grassy patch, or
- Pretty much anywhere you like.
Moreover, adjusting the size is fairly simple. Our plan is a 12′ X 16′ design because that’s a very common deck size.
In my view, adding surrounding gardens and bushes would really add to this deck.
We hope you like this design. The full suite of blueprints are below as well as link to download the entire plan in PDF form. Check out our massive deck gallery for more deck ideas.
