Decks provide outdoor living spaces that are great for barbecues, gatherings, or some quiet book reading in the fresh air.  It is essential that best practices in construction are used to build a safe deck.  In this workshop, students will learn the procedures to build a deck that meets building code regulations and provides a safe outdoor space.  Students will learn about deck layout, footers, setting posts and girders, and framing the deck.
