Build a multi-level DIY deck

A courtyard with concrete slab floor was transformed from a dull and dreary outdoor area into a multi-level entertainment space. The entire project involved a DIY deck installation using pine wood planks in two widths and on varying levels.

 

I am sure that many homeowners can associate with the courtyard as it was before the DIY deck installation. The concrete slab floor does little to add character to the space which is filled with a collection of mismatched furniture and an assortment of potted plants and shrubs.

The deck was designed using a series of framed pine platforms installed to create a multi-level deck area. Adjustable legs on each platform allow for drainage underneath the entire deck area and also allow each section to be removed for cleaning or maintenance. The entire deck assembly can be removed, which makes it the perfect DIY deck option if you are renting a home.
