How hard is it to build your own deck?
I want to spruce up the backyard but I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I'd like to state that I'm a very hard working individual but I typically hire someone to do the hard, manual labour intensive stuff. So how hard is it to build a deck? I went to The Home Depot and they have some step-by-step instructions and videos and what not but I'm not convinced I can do it on my own. I just wanted to make a simple straight-forward deck. Is this something better left to the professionals? I thought I'd save a few bucks and do it myself (I have most of the tools I need) but the task looks daunting.
