putting up a deck

hey guys, i’ve been debating putting up a deck on my house. (yes to do this i’d have to sell my motorcycle :-[ )

i recall hearing an audio book which suggests this isn’t as much as people think, and could be done for around $2,500. i find this hard to believe, but i’d it for that price.

anyone have any feedback? recommendations, thoughts etc.?


Yes you can get it done pretty easily for $2500 or under that depending on the size of the deck. My wife and I built a 12’ x 16’ deck on the back of our house and the cost for materials was under $2k.
