Ground Level Deck I Built Myself
by Jan Kelley
After many years, approximately ten... I finally talked my husband into building a deck. We don't go on vacations, so I wanted to invest our money in our backyard. There was a cement landing with steps prior to the deck, but it was way too small for even one chair. Having my patio set in the grass made my legs crawl...literally!
I wanted a simple deck with easy lines so, I drew this out on graph paper and showed all my friends what I was dreaming of. And now it's finally here and I adore it! The one thing special is.. there are no railings. Nothing to sweep around, shovel around, or paint and stain. That's the beauty of my design!
