build a platform deck using concrete blocks

Build the Deck Frame . Clear a flat area of lawn (or use a garage floor or driveway) for building the deck frame. If necessary you can also build the deck on top of the concrete blocks. Cut seven pressure-treated 2x6 boards to length at 93 inches using a circular saw or power miter saw; these are the standard joists. 【Get Price】

Picture 7 & 8: To make a better bond between the concrete and the block wet the block. Use a trowel to fill the hole and slots in the deck block with concrete. Push the 4×4 support cylinder tape end first into the concrete in the center of the deck block. Picture 9: Angle the steel base plate so it rests on the deck block similar to Picture 4. 【Get Price】

Digging about 6 inches into the ground create holes for the blocks so you can adjust (raise or lower) to make them even. The blocks should be spaced to make a 7' x 19' rectangle leaving about 6 inches from each block for deck boards to add another 8' x 20' rectangle. Using a string level or laser level make sure each block is level. 【Get Price】
