From the Author: Andrew M. Hunt

Andrew M. Hunt

“Hi, I'm Andrew Hunt the Decking Man, and in the past twelve years I've designed many thousands of decking projects. I have personally built hundreds of decks in that time, of every type and style imaginable.

I have also been called into many homes where they have designed and built their own decking, or had a deck made by a local decking builder. The owners ask me to try and correct major design defects that only became apparent AFTER the deck was built!

You won't have any of these problems, if you design and build your decking project with the help of my decking eBook, 'The Complete Decking Builder's Manual'. In this manual, you will find all the information you need to design and build a great deck, and better still, I guarantee you will save money. Read some of the comments from customers who used my manual when building their decking, and see what they saved!

I look forward to seeing your photos, once your decking is complete.”

...Andrew M. Hunt.



Decks Built by our Customers
84-year old Stanley Payne

With the information in the manual, I did a design for the main area to start me off and worked out from that where I would need to put the joists.

I obviously had to put double joist in some places but all in all it worked out quite OK. It is a large deck, and I could only work 4-hours a day, because I have to care for my disabled wife, but I finished it in a month!

I work a bit slower now that I am 84-years old; the bending gets me if I do too much.

Thank you,
Stan Payne

Nick and Marisca

Hello, We bought the land in 2005, and the property was built soon after. It was in a great position, on a hillside overlooking the Greek Island Samos in the bay of Kusadasi.

The land fell away quite steeply about 2 meters after the pool. I really wanted to build a large raised deck here, but having no knowledge of how to do so, lacked the confidence to tackle the decking project.

I found your Website and eBooks, and a year later we have it. I couldn't have built the deck with out the information that you provided. Thank you! We have a fantastic view, and I love it!

Best regards,
Nick & Marisca

It was a major piece of garden reconstruction, and when it was complete, the main feature was the raised garden decking.

Your "Garden Decking" eBook was the inspiration and it was a great help through every stage; from initial design to final finishing touches!

Hi John,

Thanks for your e-mail & yes my project was finished during Easter this year but we have not had much chance to enjoy it until recently. Your Website & eBook gave me some good inspiration & its pretty satisfying to look at something you have done yourself, eh.

The deck sits on the site of a tree I cut down at the beginning of the year & catches the evening sun as you can see. Raising the deck slightly gives it a little more interest & it also covers a stump approx 24 inch diameter which I didn't; have the energy to dig up. Thanks again.

We have built our deck and your e-book certainly did give us some great ideas and a lot of help in construction. We found the photographs impressive and useful.

Our decking consumed 170 sq metres of decking boards...our deck extends from the side of our cottage, by the garden conservatory, to the entire back of the cottage. There are some photographs of our new decking attached.

I have built the first phase which is the deck, the next page will be the roof and I should finish with a porch.

I really appreciate your advice from the manual and tips in which I would have had a poorly built Deck if I had not followed your guide lines.

Dear John,

My decking is now finished - weather hasn't helped! Thanks for the decking builder's manual, it was a great help. Attached are a couple of pics.

The decking is built over a low and fairly useless corner of the garden. It is raised between 45 and 90 cm above the sloping ground level and gives a sunny area in which to sit and view the garden.

Hi John,

All the work in this deck was done by me and my father, two complete amateurs. Without the help of your decking manual, I don't think we could have built it.

Hope you use a photo on your Website, because it would be nice to think my decking picture can help somebody as theirs did me.

Hi John,

Thanks for your advice and photos in your book, it was most helpful in the design I applied to my Courtyard Deck. After much planning, experimenting, and hard work, I put together my deck shown in the photos. We have just had our first party on it with 25 people, and it didn’t creak at all!

Regards, Pete

Did you notice the mirror 'door' on the left-wall, and the seaview image with the shutter borders on the right-wall. This gives the appearance of space around an enclosed decking area.
