For the confident DIYers out there, we have provided a checklist (with tips) to help your deck construction project go more smoothly. If this seems a bit too much, and not something you want to tackle on your own then get in touch with Canberra Carpentry Projects and we will happily provide a competitive quote for you.
Building your deck will be easier if you prepare all tools and materials first.
Be sure to take drainage of the site into consideration before you build. Once your deck is up, access will be limited.
Lay Weed Control Mat over the area to prevent weed growth underneath.
Measuring is easy, materials are expensive. Double check all measurements and markings before you cut any piece of material.
To get a straight, even edge to your finished decking, let the ends overhang about 50mm, then trim them all together with a saw when the job’s completed.
Remember, when using any power tool, your eyes should always be protected by wearing suitable goggles.
Depending on the size and construction of your deck you may need the approval of ACT Government’s Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) or in the case of New South Wales residents, your local council before you start.
Do I need a Development Approval (DA) to Build a Deck in Canberra?
A deck, patio, landing or terrace doesn’t need development approval if:
It does not have a roof
the height of the finished floor level is not more than 0.4m above natural ground level for any part that is either between a front boundary and a building line for the block or within 1.5m of a side or rear boundary and 1m above finished ground level in any other case
if any part of the deck is between a front boundary and a building line for the block that part of the deck does not have a balustrade
if any part of the deck is behind a building line for the block the height of any balustrade for that part of the deck is not more than 1.2m above the finished floor level for the deck
A deck is a class 10 structure. Additional criteria apply if two exempt class 10 structures would be built within 1.5 metres of a side or rear block boundary. More information
Hey you are very good at your job, and you are well paid because you’re worth it. So why would you spend your precious time assembling flat pack furniture?
It is well understood that assembling flat pack furniture can be a frustrating and time consuming activity. No matter if it’s kitchens, cabinets, wardrobes, bookcases, a computer desk or even a nest of coffee tables, a flat pack assembly session has the potential to either; drive you mad, drive your partner mad or worse…
We do a lot of flat pack assembly, which means we are good at it, and fast too! So, don’t put yourself through the drama, leave it to the professionals.
