Small Decks


These are all timber decks below about 35 square metres in area.

In this section you will find details of how I built a number of these smaller decks. All the decks in this portfolio are either classified as large or small, so you will find about half of all the decks in my portfolio in this section. Feel free to browse around but if you want less examples to choose from, then try a different category such as “raised decks”, or “decks on sloping sites”.
