If your home is built at ground level or near ground level, consider a Slightly Raised Deck Package. The slightly raised design connects your deck and backyard to better accommodate large groups, and you’ll have easy access to the kitchen and/or living room. You’ll also have plenty of space to add a barbecue and arrange deck chairs, couches, tables and other furniture. The rich brown cedar can be treated for a beautiful finish or left unstained for rustic appeal. Cedar is also naturally resistant to rot, decay and insects, and is less likely to warp or twist than most other woods. All Home Hardware Backyard Projects include quality materials, comprehensive plans, detailed cutting & assembly instructions and helpful, expert advice.
