How to build a deck - Storage space
To make your deck useful and attractive, here are some practical suggestions that will perfectly complement the configuration of it.

Storage under the patio

Under the terrace, it can be wise to build a protected space from the weather to store various items in order to clear your shed or your garage. To do this, simply attach, under the joists, metal sheet (or corrugated PVC panels) and give them a slight slope to drain water from the gallery.

When building your deck, plan a door giving access to the storage place. You can plan the appropriate opening, depending on the type of objects to be stored. Besides the pool equipment, mower, snowblower, outdoor games, flower pots… Finally, to limit the cleaning work in spring, it’s a good idea to cover the ground with pavement blocks.
