Haven't been quoted on materials yet, but I'm probably going to be building this next weekend for a neighbour of mine. It'll be built on the front of the house, replacing the existing 8x12 deck that is falling apart.
Have you guys got any suggestions? I thought about "radiusing" (is that a word) the front, but I've done that on two other decks. How can I spruce this thing up on a budget? I'm really not excited about all the plain jane rectangular decks everyone around here builds.
Thanks for your input!
Edit - Here is my joist plan.
