I built a low-level deck as an extension to our patio. The dimensions are approximately 6m x 1.15m. The height of the deck is around 400–500mm and I made sure to create a small gap between the tiled patio and deck for airflow.
I built three frames using 90 x 45cm treated Pine so that I can move them around myself.
I installedthreaded rods into the bricks to attach the frames to the patio, placing a fixing into the edge of the patio at least every metre.
The end result.
How to build a low-level deck
A low-level deck can pose a range of potential design and installation problems, with particular challenges around ventilation, drainage, termites and rotting. But it doesn't have to be a difficult project once you take the time to understand the basics of how they are put together.
