Hi everyone,

I am looking to rebuild my deck, the previous owners didnt know what they were doing. As you can see the deck is really boring. I am aslo looking to incoorperate the deck with the basement steps if possible. Any ideas? how large should i make the deck, currently its 11.5x11.5.

Yes the property line is the green fence on the left. I think i will extend the deck all the way over to the stairs and remove the iron railing on the left side.

I like this type of deck and feel that it could work, but am having trouble figuring out how to modify it to fit my space.

Oh I am definitely starting over, this current deck is horrible. Any design ideas, and how to incorporate the basement step area?

Whatever design you decide on, rip down that old, crappy deck and start over. Trying to reuse what is there will be a bigger headache and likely cause you more work than starting from scratch.

It's not very often that I come across an existing deck that I would reuse the framing of.

I certainly NEVER warranty an existing deck frame if I do reuse it.

what length should i extend the deck out from the house?
