First time building a deck, need some tips


I am not discouraging you from building a deck but have you considered building a stone and/or brick patio instead?

The pictured area looks pretty shady so you might be battling with slimy green stains more often than you prefer.

thanks for the clarification on the tempered windows it makes alot of sense now,
and to be honest I didn't give the stone/brick patio a thought, but it sounds like a great idea as well, i'm not against it, do they follow the same permit guidelines as wooden decks? to be honest with you, the permit is kind of dampening my mood and desire to create the thing, ive seen whats required and it isnt too simple.

Lot less stringent requirements than a deck, if any. My town does not have any permit requirements for a patio.

patios are a lot less stringent in their requirements, I do not know of a building department in my area that requires a permit for a patio, decks require permits

I am getting ready to demo a 30 year old deck (talk about a trampoline) on my place and replace it with a ground level patio with some stone counters for an outdoor kitchen
